He Will Be Home


A Marine

Special Forces.

Served his country

Missing in action.


His name – Danny.

All over the internet.

Falling victim

To sick predators.


A Marine

Special Forces.

Did his duty.

Leave him alone.


Junk mail

Get it all the time.

Using his name

Within my address.


You’re a low life.

Leave him alone.

He served his country.

He’s MIA.


If I could reach

My hand into the blinded

World of the internet

I would punch you.


One too many times

Disrespect my brother.

Leave it alone.

He will be home.

Some people have no class. Here some clown is bothering a serviceman and his family. I can still punch I would love to take the creep out.

To dishonour such a man and such upholder of his countrys honour is sick and perverted. I can understand your pain and your anger.
Reviewed by John Bidwell 6/30/2010
Let's be thankful that we really can't imagine what poverty of soul could sink to such a low.
Your brother is in your heart- the highest place he could be.
There will be good things in your mail.
This reminds me- this weekend I should put up the flag that covered my Uncle Jack's casket. He was a pilot- plane went down before I was born. But I have things my mother kept- loving her brother.
Whoever would lack respect for your brother is certainly without love.
How barren that life must be. It is not life at all without love.
