Letter to the Editor: Golden Spurs

His ticket out –
those lucky bone spurs in his heels
good for five deferments
a free pass
from the hot lead of Viet Nam
Not for him
the brotherhood of the fallen
Golden Spurs
to match the golden locks
combed over the barren dome
of the Commander in Chief
stout in his demand
that NFL players
for the flag he so loves
for the country
he never served
for the right to protest
that he holds in contempt
as he treads the plush fairway
of the seventh hole.
Charles Sabukewicz
