WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE WAR DID YOU DO DADDY?
Not much I guess.
VA assigns the loss and the cost.
They pay somethin’ called PTSD.
(What is that, Daddy?)
How much a Vet suffers from the war I guess.
(Did you suffer?)
Not like the guys got wounded bad. I did OK!
(Were you lucky Daddy?)
Yep! Guess I was.
(I love you Daddy)
Go to sleep…
… there will be enough war in the future for you and yours.
War is 100 percent death… or… 0-90 lyin’ on the table…
and it don’t mean nuthin’… nuthin’ at all.
