This work has reached the exceptional level
America's dark road of undeclared wars
"The Disgrace of the Vietnam War" by Robert Zimmerman
When men came home from Vietnam
their lives were deeply changed.
These warriors fought an ugly war,
but some folks were deranged.
 
They hated those boys forced to serve
T’were drafted for the war.
The men came home to hate and spite.
Their souls were bruised and sore.
 
No mercy shown by the elites
when battered troops returned.
Malicious hate for fragile men
like phosphorus still burned.
 
There was no gratitude bestowed
on soldiers' mangled lives.
Instead of saying, “Welcome home,”
they stabbed them with hate knives.
 
The fighter that had given all
Had sadness on his face.
The land he loved had sent him off
And acted with disgrace.

The French left Vietnam after Dien Bien Fu.
America decided to wage an undeclared war that cost over 50,000 lives and hundreds of thousands of casualties for America.
The political and cultural left in America hated the war and referred to the drafted American soldiers as baby killers and war criminals.
Korea prompted America to participate in undeclared wars.
Vietnam was a horrible venture that never should have occurred.
