Spent Man of War

Behold! Spent man of war
Veteran of countless fights
Struggling now to think straight
Battling for his rights

Pathetic, teary-eyed recluse
Burdened on loved ones
Incapacitated and rendered useless
Fostering the goals of felons

Able bodied soldier of yesterday
Man of myriad recollections
Reliving daily, war's devilish throes
Slave to endless hallucinations

Behold! Spent man of war
Limbless and lumbering
Heading into uncertain tomorrow
Paining and wondering
