Public Servants?

Why should be surprised, again


That those who have all the powers
Don’t look down and see the others
From high, in their ivory towers.

It’s the same old, tired story


They say, “We just didn’t know!”
Because those who serve under them
Just failed to tell them, what was so.

It’s another case of Veterans


Of the Wars they fight for us
Coming home to be forgotten
By those, they’re supposed to trust.

They get tied up in the red tape


And then get shuffled here to there
Instead of being treated with respect
By those, who are supposed to care.

All those military bureaucrats


Twist the truth to find a way
To get out of those benefits
That, they once promised to pay.

Those “throw-a-way” Soldiers


Who have fought and paid our cost
Who then, look for decent treatment
Far too many times, are lost.

When they serve us, we love them


Our Heroes, each and every one
But, why do we forsake them
When, their fighting days are done.

Our Service People deserve better


Especially, when they come home
And their Families, all our support
So they know, they’re not alone.

We’ve seen stories about Fisher House


That’s more, the way it should be
Except for all heroes and loved ones
All of that care should be, free.

It’s a small price for us to pay


To all those who pay the highest cost
For us to have all our Freedoms
That, so easily, could be lost.

Just, another sign of the times


Of those who lead us off to War
Who think all the People serve them
Instead of how it used to be, before.

It’s about time, “We, the People”


Take a stand, and tell them so
“It’s the other way around!
You’re our servants, don’t you know?”

Somebody should be fired


Starting there, up near the top
And this mistreatment of our Heroes
Most definitely, must stop!
