Blasphemous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
cause burgeoning numbers of injured
in the horribly over-burdened VA.
A stingy, heartless Congress votes against
necessary funding to care for the boys and
girls they lauded as they headed to harm’s way.
Now fingers point at the other party and
the sitting president, while those waiting
for medical treatment are shooed away.
And those in the previous administration
are either sitting at an artist’s easel
or pontificating on news shows on Sunday.
What they forget is that for every finger
pointing in an accusative way, as the cliche
goes, three are pointing right back their way.
