Thurman P. Woodfork


Ah, words, words, how they dance and play,
The concern was not with what parents say
But the emotions they feel as their children leave.
Do they watch with joy or quietly grieve?

And, if all parents really do have no say
Over whether their children will go or stay
Why is it that the military file and rank
Bursts with those with less money in the bank?
