Thurman P. Woodfork: Ah, PatriotismHave you gone daft?
Bring back the draft?
Nobody’s exempt?
I never dreamt…
I support the troops,
But these fruit loops
Want me to be one!
I’m quite undone!
Me, carry a gun
In the desert sun?
Don’t make me laugh.
You have gone daft.

Author’s Note: I was watching the news – I forget which channel, I surf a lot – and someone called Rep. Charles Rangel, who is advocating a reinstatement of the military draft, a fool. I was deeply touched by the patriotic attitude.
