Ballad Of The Yellowest Beret
Poem By Hubert Wilson
Frightened airman from the Texas sky,
Fearful man who would jump to lie!
Man who meant not what he would say!
This craven man deserved the despised yellowest beret!
Privileged status then to protect his rear.
This man hid for a year!
Thousands of men then sacrificed each day,
But this one so deserved the yellowest beret!
Trained to live off others' work,
Trained in politics with that smirk!
Man who hid both night and day!
Craven deep is this yellowest beret!
Back at home veterans awaited an unknown fate,
While this yellowest beret showed up a year late!
