    He was bald and paunchy

    And his hair was falling fast,

    And he sat around the Legion,

    Telling stories of the past.

    Of a war that he once fought in

    And the deeds that he had done,

    In his exploits with his buddies;

    They were heroes, every one.

    And ‘tho sometimes to his neighbors

    His tales became a joke,

    All his buddies listened quietly

    For they knew where of he spoke.

    But we’ll hear his tales no longer,

    For ol’ Joe has passed away,

    And the world’s a little poorer

    For a Soldier died today.

    He won’t be mourned by many,

    Just his children and his wife.

    For he lived an ordinary,

    Very quiet sort of life.

    He held a job and raised a family,

    Going quietly on his way;

    And the world won’t note his passing,

    ‘Tho a Soldier died today.

    When politicians leave this earth,

    Their bodies lie in state,

    While thousands note their passing,

    And proclaim that they were great.

    Papers tell of their life stories

    From the time that they were young

    But the passing of a Soldier

    Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

    Is the greatest contribution

    To the welfare of our land,

    Some jerk who breaks his promise

    And cons his fellow man?

    Or the ordinary fellow

    Who in times of war and strife,

    Goes off to serve his country

    And offers up his life?

    The politician’s stipend

    And the style in which he lives,

    Are often disproportionate,

    To the service that he gives.

    While the ordinary Soldier,

    Who offered up his all,

    Is paid off with a medal

    And perhaps a pension, small.

    It is not the politicians

    With their compromise and ploys,

    Who won for us the freedom

    That our country now enjoys.

    Should you find yourself in danger,

    With your enemies at hand,

    Would you really want some cop-out,

    With his ever waffling stand?

    Or would you want a Soldier

    His home, his country, his kin,

    Just a common Soldier,

    Who would fight until the end.

    He was just a common Soldier,

    And his ranks are growing thin,

    But his presence should remind us

    We may need his likes again.

    For when countries are in conflict,

    We find the Soldier’s part

    Is to clean up all the troubles

    That the politicians start.

    If we cannot do him honor

    While he’s here to hear the praise,

    Then at least let’s give him homage

    At the ending of his days.

    Perhaps just a simple headline

    In the paper that might say:



    Pass On The Patriotism! YOU can make a difference.

    If you are proud of our Vets, then send this to them. You’ll be glad you did.
    God Bless America
    And those that protect her..

  2. They care about the planet, that makes everything they do OK. I mean, they could even kill ten million or so black people and get away with it if they wanted to.

    Wait a minute… they already did.
