Baby Killer


There were no parades

When Joe came home

They spit on him instead

Baby Killer! Baby Killer!

Shouts Ringing in his ears

Not one pat on the back for Joe

No thank yous for a job well done

Why couldn’t he tune in, turn on, tune out

Burn his card and run away to Canada

A bomb disguised as a child took out his company

He lost his left ear, and gained a purple heart

War bruised his heart to the point of a violet hue

Unknown


He lived a life Unknown

No One noticed him

He was a country boy

Tended the fields from

Sunrise to sunset

He honored his Mother

Honored his Father too

Gave thanks for the land

Day Came The Unknown

Received word to go to War

He Proudly went and served

From Sunrise to Sunset

From Sunset to Sunrise

He Gave His all With Honor

Though He was Unknown

 

Violet Hue


There were no parades

When Joe came home

They spit on him instead

Baby Killer! Baby Killer!

Shouts Ringing in his ears

Not one pat on the back for Joe

No thank yous for a job well done

Why couldn’t he tune in, turn on, tune out

Burn his card and run away to Canada

A bomb disguised as a child took out his company

He lost his left ear, and gained a purple heart

War bruised his heart to the point of a violet hue

 

 

Theatre of War


When Johnny comes marching home again

If Johnny comes marching home again

Hey, Joe, Where you going with that gun

A Band of Brothers off in the jungles

Brothers and Sisters out in the desert

Storming the beaches and kicking mighty ass

They call it a Theatre of War because the show

Must always go on my dear comrades

Arms and legs flying left and right in the night

The show with blood splatter and gore it goes on

Freedom fighters until the very end my dear friend

Wounded Warriors we remember them on Memorial Day

Remember Me With Love


Burned and bloodied

Done not for vanity

Or For The Glory

And Certainly not the money

I gave my all for Freedom

I did it for you and you

I did it for my country

For other Freedom Loving Countries

For those who couldn’t

I did it because I had no choice

Remember me with love

 

 

 

 

Freedom Isn’t Free

Freedom isn’t free my good friend

It comes at a very high price

Through the blood of sacrifice

Tears and sweat of soldiers who fought

Often for others Political gain

I salute the soldiers, for their bravery

I give a different sort of salute to The Politician

Without Pain, There is No Gain

But who really has the most to gain

Greedy Pigs getting rich off the concept of Freedom

Free your Mind and see The Real Revolution

Giving us The Illusion of Freedom is Revolting , Indeed

 

When Duty Called


Arlington National Cemetery

He crawled in his hole and waited

Thunder booming all around him

The sky was bright with after fire

His heart beat like that of a rabbit

He was all alone in that dark hole

All alone with his thoughts and dreams

His young life flashing before his eyes

Knowing not if he were the huntsman

Or the hunted in this Theatre of War

A brave young man who didn’t dodge

Instead gave his all when duty called
