I aint marchin anymore - Phil Oachs.
As to tet... I was standing on a street corner with an old friend, a jazz musician, who was remembering with me the lies that were told during that time. He said the following
President thought he could win the war! They kept telling him about the light at the end of the tunnel, the light at the end of the tunnel. Well, Larry, there was a light at the end of the tunnel. It was a frieght train and its name was Tet!
I hope we are learning, but when I see a nation covered with black POW/MIA flags, celibrating the myth that American life is so valuble that Vietnamese keep prisoners to this day, while the reality is that the same ones who have that symbol as a bumper sticker on their car, who on their way to work, step over the real MIAs, the masses of veterins who live on the streets of American towns and cities, I wonder when we will learn it was not the anti war crowd who are responcible for what happened to the returning vets, it was the sons of bitches who then sent their sons into Grenada, Panama, The middle east,
call it love or call it treason
call it pease or call it reason
but I aint marchin anymore.
