Heroic Hypocrisy

How we treat our heroes is a major disgrace;
We pretend to care deeply, but that’s not the case.
A friend served our country In the Vietnam War;
He’s now denied care because of what the rules are.

We cover the children of those that break our laws
But covering our heroes somehow gives us pause.
We can spend untold dollars on bombs, planes, and such;
When the fighting’s over, we don’t care very much.

The politicians keep feeding at our tax trough,
But those who risked their lives seem not much better off
Than those who waste their lives on wine and drugs, and song
How is it that we’re not working to right this wrong?
