Nothing to do but keep
my job and that meant
keeping skinny yet it was
not in the cards for me.
No utilities at all
did i pay military
kept me that way.
Working 12, 24 & 48
hours at a time
always kept late.
Working days through
for the family.
Time would go past
in order to get
that cash.
Now all done i realize
in the military we
were one.
A team united for safety
and life.
We could come home each
day without strife.
