CLAW BACK LAMENT

I have climbed up mountains high
And jumped from planes up in the sky:
I dodged the bullets and dug each trench.
Now I am old my back is bent
I still have to work to pay the rent:
That’s what a soldier said to me.
I fought for freedom – it is not free.

John Labelle will try to get
The claw back removed from each old vet.
They are being last posted – lest we forget.
MPs and Senators – they aren’t clawed back,
With the judges they have the inside track.
Daily, the last posts are received by me.
Yes Freedom really is not free.
