Hard to See



America has a way

Of letting entertainment

Allow her to forget

Her past and passions,


And no-one is held accountable

For the actions of their youth,


But Truth still needs consideration,


Because it’s hard to see

A Commander-in-Chief

With five deferments from military service


Spending Veteran’s day

In Vietnam.






Ben White
