Broken Legged Soldier Eh! - Poem by me poet yeps poet

Good one
Only one leg broken
just imagine a guy who loses a thigh
and another leg is amputated
his whole life is rotated
and as veteran ex casualty
his countrymen forget him
silly guy, why could he be not careful

Now who will care for such a one
who played with his life for fun
go remove his gun
he has no place now with us under the sun

Veteran what
why could he not look after him a bit
if not a lot

get him out
board him
throw him into the dust bin of time
where no one will see him
even on crutches
he couldn't look after a leg or two
what will now for his country do?

    A very sad and poignant commentary on the wretchedness of a soldier who makes sacrifices for the sake of his country and the people and suffers physical disability and then indignation heaped on him by society treating him as a useless discard. Thanks. (Report) Reply
