I feel like a lost Veteran casket.

Please help a Veteran get some VA help, forget it.

I cannot get in here at Panama City VA.
My meds have to be filled from the Tuscaloosa VA.
The Tuscaloosa VA there probably needs an appointment.
I will have to transfer my records back that I transferred here to Tuscaloosa.

God it is insanity that one must be forced to stay in one place, especially with the newspaper refusing to help.

Then with medicare one must stand in the place the provider offers services.

No wonder homeless Veterans get no VA help, or can get in the government food stamp program.

Where is the Obama Health Care that was signed into law?

Playing nurse put Neosporin on after wiping the liquid off. I then applied gauze around leg to help it heal.

Obama Nation V. A. Administration Amputation


The way Washington treats its displaced caskets

Is how it treats Veterans without any fixed homes

Being penalized while traveling around America

That one must own a home to get any benefits.


Veterans trapped within systems needing addresses

Vets needing cell phones living in homeless conditions

But when they need immediate help for any ailments

They are assigned elongated distant appointment.



Left leg oozing liquid like sap running down your trunk

Horizontal red open wound with white blisters tears skin,

Water acidity leaving white trails to gravitate down a limb

That amputated feeling in being ejected in an Obama nation.


This Ben Franklin doppelganger Vietnam Vet’s Living Suicide

That struggles daily to stay alive in the miracle of prayers,

But feels the religious political Progressive Conservatism

That needs Congress’s 1% compassion of their Christianity.


Oh God, my Liberal God of God Bless Made in America

One goes to a newspaper to seek their divine help

And get scorned in a we do not give a damn attitude

That makes you feel like the other side of the tracks.


Irony of Ben Franklin Journalism with fair and balanced

That a Ole Ben doppelganger feels the country club press

That we do not want you here homeless redneck feeling

That Ben is a Yankee, a Liberal, and not deserving help.


HELP ME America,

I am leaking.

I have sprung a leak.

Some Obama nation care.

No wonder, I quit political parties.
