      “Just A Common Soldier, A Soldier Died Today” 
       
      By A. Lawrence Vaincourt
       
      1985

      He was getting old and paunchy
      And his hair was falling fast,
      And he sat around the Legion,
      Telling stories of the past.
       
      Of a war that he once fought in
      And the deeds that he had done,
      In his exploits with his
      buddies;
      They were heroes, every one.
       
      And 'tho sometimes to his
      neighbors
      His tales became a joke,
      All his buddies listened quietly
      For they knew where of he spoke.
       
      But we'll hear his tales no
      longer,
      For ol' Joe has passed away,
      And the world's a little poorer
      For a Soldier died today.
       
      He won't be mourned by many,
      Just his children and his wife.
      For he lived an ordinary,
      Very quiet sort of life.
       
      He held a job and raised a
      family,
      Going quietly on his way;
      And the world won't note his
      passing,
      Tho a Soldier died today.
       
      When politicians leave this
      earth,
      Their bodies lie in state,
      While thousands note their
      passing,
      And proclaim that they were
      great.
       
      Papers tell of their life
      stories
      From the time that they were
      young
      But the passing of a Soldier
      Goes unnoticed, and unsung.
       
      Is the greatest contribution
      To the welfare of our land,
      Some jerk who breaks his promise
      And cons his fellow man?
       
      Or the ordinary fellow
      Who in times of war and strife,
      Goes off to serve his country
      And offers up his life?
       
      The politician's stipend
      And the style in which he lives,
      Are often disproportionate,
      To the service that he gives.
       
      While the ordinary Soldier,
      Who offered up his all,
      Is paid off with a medal
      And perhaps a pension, small.
       
      It is not the politicians
      With their compromise and ploys,
      Who won for us the freedom
      That our country now enjoys.
       
      Should you find yourself in
      danger,
      With your enemies at hand,
      Would you really want some
      cop-out,
      With his ever waffling stand?
       
      Or would you want a Soldier
      His home, his country, his kin,
      Just a common Soldier,
      Who would fight until the end.
       
      He was just a common Soldier,
      And his ranks are growing thin,
      But his presence should remind
      us
      We may need his likes again.
       
      For when countries are in
      conflict, 
      We find the Soldier's part
      Is to clean up all the
      troubles  
      That the politicians start.
       
      If we cannot do him honor
      While he's here to hear the
      praise,
      Then at least let's give him
      homage
      At the ending of his
      days.
       
      Perhaps just a simple headline
      In a newspaper that would
      say...
      "OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
      FOR A SOLDIER DIED
      TODAY."

      RPI is unConstitutional because Congress can only pass uniform rules
      not one for thee and another for thou.

      Note to the Gang of 8. RPI allows immigrants immediate entry (no waiting in line), forgiveness of
      income taxes not paid, reduced immigration fees, shortened waiting time for complete citizenship and more.

      Even if it is the only reasonable and/or acceptable solution, it requires amending the Constitution to be legal.
