Blasphemous Wars

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.
