The General fought for his life
like he never had before –
not in Vietnam
nor the Gulf War
I and II, Iraq or
Bravely, he fought at home
sexually assaulting and beating
up a lover.
Oh my, his mettle shone.
But someone blew his cover
and the M.P.s did hover.
To the clink, this heroic man
no more hanky-panky or blow
He then faced the sober judge
a military man,
too, one not to budge.
No, this honorable, courageous
brother-in-arms, stuck by the man clan,
showed his own mettle and
just about totally
released the man.
No jail time, a pittance from his pension
and the message is an interesting lesson.
The General had nothing about which to worry
and it’s becoming a sad, old story.
So, military women or for that matter,
any female, please
learn this lesson well—
boys will be boys and you don’t matter
and apparently according
to the U.S. military all the skirts
can go to hell.
Yep, RHIP…RANK HAS ITS PRIVILEDGES. The general will be remembered as a hero, one of the best leading the best outfit. He did not make a mistake–he knew exactly what he was doing and so did the woman. Both are sorry examples of how to live…and they both got away with it in our military system. No excuses, no apology, retiring with lots of money for the rest of their lives.
And Gillibrand get the finger again.
