Black Vet

by Farasi

Why do I be sittin' in the dark day or night?
The VA shrink want to know that too.
Before them war papers come I liked the light.
Next thing I knew I was over there in Nam.
Now I'm old and weak and sick.
I got to be like the VC hidin' in the jungle
Waitin' for some Yanks to blunder by.
Somebody break in, I see him
Before he see me or this pistol in my lap.
