“Red Dog” ~ David T. Roberts
YOU PROTESTED ME
You protested me, as I was dying for you
I refused see – because it was something I swore to do.
With each fallen warrior
I heard you say better him than me, that, I could not see,
You protested me.
Now that we are popular, and a wall for us has been built
To honor our fallen brothers and sisters that will never return.
What young heroes these, something you could never be,
I protected you, yet you protested me
You protested me, but claim you stood by my side
But I remember and know how well you lie. Someday one of yours
Will hear the call then he will see – you turned your back
and you protested me.
The war is over but back then you spewed hate,
How many Mothers hearts did you make cry?
She buried her son while you ran free
To spit on America, as you protested me.
