Let me doze a little longer
 

Let me doze a little longer

Let me drift away

To a land of milk and honey

To a place called yesterday

 

Some say my face is ugly

Some simply look away

My broken back cause some to laugh

I walk a funny way

 

Some point at me as I approach

Some stare and crack a joke

And press me in my wheelchair

Which limb was it that I broke?

 

Let me doze a little longer

Let me pray for souls alas

Who went intact to fierce combat

And body bags came back

 

Let me doze a little longer

Let me miss the rising sun

Let me join the stars in heaven

Shining hero’s everyone
 

I read of a veteran abused at a railway station by
a gang of thugs and in response I wrote the above.
