Veterans’ Day

I will never understand why

There is one day for veterans.

Why do we need a day to show the respect

That is rarely shown the rest of the time.

Does one day make up for

The half-assed efforts every other day?

We have national doughnut day!

Doughnuts make us happy,

But, all they give is bad health.

Now, I am not implying

That we need to get rid of those golden-glazed-glories.

But, we could at least make it

“national give a vet a doughnut day “

At the very least.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
