The Big Blue Mac

Over the hill he thundered
Rambling wheels down the highway
Long journeys, sleepless nights
A light shinning, Oh! To stay awake,
Another town another day
Gone tomorrow and here today
A sip of caffeine, don’t want to dream
How he wishes to be seen
As a hero, a person, someone of value and esteem
Instead he runs both day and night from his demons.

In days gone by he wore a uniform
For our country he was sworn
Friends fell and died all around
His best friend, the clown of the town
He fought, he strode above the hell
For he did tell
Through the muck and blood
Because of duty and above all, his love.

We did not acknowledge his bravery
Instead we three raw eggs on that day
He lost so much during those months
His friends, his youth his innocence
And now it is but a memory
Or visitations during moments of sleep
To close his eyes and fear to weep
To feel again is not his reality
Numbness pain is now is life
And to deliver this load without any strife
