When Duty Calls - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When duty calls with a specific agenda,
Why does it seem that so many...
Run in the opposite direction fast and quick.
Refusing to enlist and serve,
To protect their own interests that are claimed to exist.
But yet they have the time to suggest and debate,
Who qualifies to get their endorsement...
With statements made to criticize one's patriotism.
