THE LEGION – RUN BY CIVVIES – FACT OR FICTION?

Do not stand and shout
Sit, be calm and talk it out
No one wants to lead the pack.
I’m not wounded – I’m all right Jack.
Afraid to stand and speak – talk back
Care for OSI wounded shows a lack.
Do the Government Mandarins have control?
Are veterans’ rights bought and sold?
Shut up veterans. Scold. Scold. Scold.
The Government took a Legion poll?
Some have already sold their soul;
Others sit, with a beggar’s bowl.
A’ sitting homeless in the cold.
The RCL is gone so I am told?
