SEAL of approval

SEAL of Approval

Presidents ratings go up
Bringing our warriors home
SEAL of Approval
Only to be reinvested
The dust filled boots
On foreign ground
People who berate
All our maneuvers
Beckoning their need
Our money our heroes
Our cloth should be rendered
One Soul lost in the mire
Yet many morn
The loss of an icon
Whose substance abused
draining his body of life.
Nay the boot on the ground
sand embedded
nary hears a sob
Soon forgotten.
