NO ROOM AT THE INN

Thousands fought for you
… your freedom to keep

Tonight two hundred thousand
sleep upon the street

They are the very same ones
who came back home lost
after their jobs were done

Allowed by a system that lacks
the power to prevent its veterans
from falling through the cracks

These are the same ones
who fought to keep us free;
Can we not make a place for them
somewhere twixt you and me…
