A FAREWELL TO THE OMBUDSMAN

Thank you Colonel P@ for all you have done.
You opened the doors and you let in the sun.
You questioned the system. You tried to do right.
You stood up for veterans. You entered the fight.

Stopped by the bureaucrats who used your pers file
To belittle your efforts and to criticize your style.
Concerned about our wounded and insurance lump sums:
Struggling for their rights under heavy bureaucratic guns.

Officer, gentleman, the professional solder so true:
We are so very proud of things you attempted to do.
We wish you well in retirement. We wish you good luck.
Please reserve us a signed copy of your tell it all book.

Author’s Note: God Bless You Sir
