It Is The Soldier

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us the freedom of religion.

It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.

It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.

It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.

We were married last Friday
My girl was right beside me
Our friends were all gone
We were alone
Side by side

We were so happy when
She got ready for bed and
Then her teeth and her hair
She placed on a chair
Side by side

One glass eye so tiny
One hearing aid so small
Then she took a leg off
And placed  on a chair by the wall

I sat brokenhearted
Most of my girl had departed
I slept on the chair
There was more of her there,
Side by side.

I did a horrible thing today...not like me..I blame it on the heat.  I was coming back from work this morning..waiting ar a stop sign..waiting for a car to go by on the road.  Well I wait and wait  because i don`t trust anyone.....and at the last second as he already turning..he puts on his directional light.  As he he turned past me I see that he is texting as he`s driving and not paying any attention.  This is when I did the deed..! I yelled..."Get off the phone and drive".  He didn`t even look at me. Jerk!!!  Now : I have never ever flipped anyone the bird in my entire life.  It`s just not something I do.  But I did....!!!!!!!!!!!  So my question is this  : Does that make me a bad grandma??  Opinions and comments welcome.
