Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

VETERAN' RESPONSE

An avid Seahawk fan
Love my country
My flag is precious
Game day always wore
Number 12 colors
I well save it for paint jobs
All lives have meaning
Policeman, fireman, Korean store owners
Regardless of skin color
Today I took the jersey off
Taking a stand children should know their Fathers
Today saluted the flag
And turned the TV off
Two to three murders a day
This is the racial injustice
I well stand up against
Two or three NFL players a month
Charged in abusive relationships
