Nancy L. Meek


It’s hard to discern the real from the fake…
the veterans who claim they’re raving mad,
especially with all that money at stake,
because of traumas they have never had.

It’s sadder than sad that folk such as they
who play on sympathies for all they’re worth,
especially with all the real blokes who pay,
will earn their rewards nowhere on earth.
