Non Gratum Anus Rodentum
(Not Worth A Rat's Ass)

anger, is often grief that has been silent for too long.
- Nayyirah Waheed

Many choose to be silent about their service in any war.
Where there is death and wounding of body and mind.
As way of dealing with 'survivor guilt', for surviving.
I was angry a great deal after coming back from Vietnam.
The hardest was listening to veterans of World War II and Korea.
Most did not have to deal with 'rules of engagement'.
Neither did they come home to outright hostility.
Cursing and spitting to name just a few things.
And I was dealing with surviving all those months without being wounded.
1965 was the closest I came to 'buying the farm.
That bullet sound cracked close to my right ear.
I got down and started returning fire.
Not that I had a target, just returning a few rounds,

In the DON THE CON/CROOK brain.
There is a 'left' and 'right'.
In the left side, there-s nothing right.
In the right side, there-s nothing left.

DON THE CON/CROOK asked the adoring crowd.
Who's going to pay for the wall?
And the crowd responded in unison.
Mexico!
Mexic!
Mexi!
Mex!
Me!
And then the crowd shouted, at the tops of their lungs.
You said Mexico was going to PAY

Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.
