If You Want To Know Me, Read My Poetry

I am a Vietnam Vet,
I live my life as I see fit!
If you want to know me,
then read my Poetry,
it’s my history!
It’s based on my life,
the pleasant and the strife!
Not all that I say is exact,
but most of it is fact!
I believe in God and my Country,
and I prefer love over money!
I’ve been alone a very long time,
sometime I think I’ll go out of my mind!
I want to be in love again,
but my time might have come to an end!
I like to talk about Politics,
and I believe in the Republic!
I don’t like what Washington does,
we must return to the way it was!
Our Nation for which it stands,
is being ruined by one man!
Socialism is not for me,
nor for my Country ‘tis of thee!
The Great Communicator once said,
This Country’s Security could fall dead!
When faced with Our Country’s financial death,
the “Gipper” stepped back and took a deep breath!
Instead of raising taxes he lowered them,
this was good for everyone!
Ronald Reagan was a great man,
for love of Country he did understand!
He didn’t apologize to our enemy’s Nation,
instead he made it clear we were their salvation!
He never hesitated to do what was needed,
that is why he succeeded!
I don’t like what’s happened to my Country,
sometimes I feel we’re no longer free!
I fought a war for our land,
and I wish for all to understand!
I would die for her today,
God Bless The U.S.A.!
