Love Unreturned

Love Unreturned
 

dear Uncle Sam
i donít understand
i meant business
when i vowed to defend
the constitution

you know iím the poet
an American classic
you canít pull me
from the fire
the emotional history
will be lost

i sailed for you
i suffered for you
i killed for you
i was willing to die
for you
now you turn your back
on me
WHY

my prideís wounded
deeper than the path
of any enemyís bullet
but, i wonít abandon you
i canít
iíll criticize like always
rest assured
i wonít turn

Norfolk, Virginia Ď87
