A poem, I was handed sometime back. . .

Non Gratum Anus Rodentum
(Not Worth A Rat's Ass)
I made a web-page of this poem.
THE GHOST OF VIETNAM
By Short Round

(There's a blurred image of serviceman)

Lying in his bed at night.
Once again the figure.
Comes into sight.
The ghost of his past.
Comes flashing by.
Leaving the veteran.
Asking himself why?
What have I done he says.
With his head in his hands.
To bring back the demons.
Of a far away land.
The demons I promised.
That I would never let loose.
Put their hands around my neck.
Like a threatening noose.
Years ago I promised.
Myself that they.
Forever behind the wall.
The demons would stay.
The counselors I went to.
Said they all understand,
And then they would stand up.
And smile and then.
Shake my hand.
Call if you need us.
They would say.
With a flair.
But none of them saw.
My thousand yard stare.
To the ghost I then asked.
Why is it you're here?
Do you think in my mind.
That it is death.
That I fear.
He says to the ghost.
From behind his own wall.
I know you are here.
You came home with us all.
And no one can help us.
We can't be saved.
Our demons are with us.
From the Nam.
To our graves.

Could this poem be amended for all our wars?

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

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.


Looking more like the puppet Walter!
