A Poem for the rEVOLution (My first forum post in DP)

My day job is that of a medical laboratory technician,
Serving in the Army thats supposed to defend the Constitution.

I'm here in Germany helping treat the wounded from downrange,
Thinking are needless casualties something we can help change?

I have also deployed to a place in Afghanistan named Kandahar;
Believing in the mission but claiming victory still seems far.

I haven't been perfect but I always worked hard as a soldier;
There were times I almost quit but instead wept on a shoulder.

Last year a good friend kept posting about a man on Facebook.
Trying not to call him crazy a whole lot of energy it took.

Then one day at a friend's party I agreed to take a brochure,
Knowing it will shut him up and later I will toss it for sure.

I eventually read it so as to not feel guilty about lying.
After some more research I realized our liberties are dying.

Slowly and cautiously I was becoming more and more involved,
Telling friends and coworkers national problems can be solved.

I may be overzealous in support without knowing all the facts,
There's always more research but it seems his record's intact.

While in uniform there are rules to how we can be in politics.
But when I'm off duty no one can tell me its wrong to pick.

So I gave a little donation to the most recent Moneybomb.
More satisfying than drinking a few good tasting Jagerbombs.

Thought we will have our first victory for liberty in Maine,
They still gave it to the 'front-runner' that's so insane!

Too bad my tour of service is not over till after elections.
So I can be home campaigning for him to get that position.

Decided I will not let the MSM make me pick between two evils;
I will join the rEVOLution and spread word while being civil.

If you don't already know the name my candidate is Ron Paul
Who has devoted his life to peace, gold, and liberty for all.

-Tony

Loved It

thank you for the poem you nailed it!

oh and a reminder.. your fellow soldiers who are here will be marching on the whitehouse TODAY for the Ron Paul is the choice of the troops march! there should be live streams and lots of videos

Reminder

Thanks, wish I can be there with yall. But I want to point out one thing if you don't mind spreading at the event. For anyone there that is active duty, please do not go in uniform. You can participate, but it would be a shame to see fellow troopers get in trouble because they didn't know appearing at political events in uniform is against policy. You can fight for freedom without ruining your career be smart about it. Other than that, yeah, let the commander in chief know where we stand...which is the fact we want a new commander in chief!

Im reminded of Mark Twain who said

"The great literary masters works are like fine wine, my work is like water. Everyone drinks water."
I was thirsty. Thanks for the drink Tony : )

Thanks, and you're welcome

I actually went to Mark Twain Junior High School :D

Just wait until...

Just wait until you meet our own local Mark Twain here at the DP. Quite the character.lol.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I liked it Tony!

Nice work. Thanks for sharing!

Hey Tony,

May your time there go by quickly,
'cause our country's getting sickly.

And we need you here on this shore,
not there fighting endless war.

When you make it home you'll see,
that the fight for liberty,
has been taken into hand,
by your fellow countrymen.

Take care Tony!

Nice

Awesome poetry, thanks for the reply :D

You should post that here too, we can start a poetry slam here. Very good poem.

I like this. It is not only well written, but

It kind of shows how people are turned off to Paul only to actually give him a chance. And once they do, they are usually sucked into the R3volution, and cannot help it. It is like a black hole, except we know what is on the other end: the restoration of our constitution, and the right to liberty!Great post!

A chance
