A Faded Hero

A brave man among brave men the patriots of him did say
Ten years ago he returned as a hero from a war far away
In his honor for him a huge street parade
But sometimes hero worship has been known to fade

Estranged from his young son and daughter and their mother his beautiful wife
He is one who did make the wrong choices in life
He is one who has been on many a pub crawl
Alcohol as it has been to many it has been his downfall
One who knows of mental and physical hell
