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.
