Self-Proclaimed Patriots Purported Metamorphosis and Armchair General Dis-Service

Photo by Mitchell Luo on

American living-room armchair Generals

Have never served a day

Nay! even a minute in service!

Either as volunteer

Officer or conscript

Is this why your undying conception of soldier and citizen is flipped?

Soldiers salute the flag!

As part of their duty to honor and protect their Motherland

Great American citizens

With hand over heart these good citizens commit to

Protesting democratically on economic

Social and political issues

Deemed necessary as emissaries to make a stand

The military was composed

To ensure the American Liberty Bell will always ring

It is my fervent distinction to have served in the United States Army

Defending the rights so hard fought for in American history past

Via such esteemed Americans as Frederick Douglass

John Brown

Malcolm X

Sojourner Truth

Helen Keller

Muhammad Ali

Susan B. Anthony

And Dr. Martin Luther King.
