Donald J. Trump … Vietnam Combat veteran.

“I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era,” Trump said “It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”

Oh yes …
no its true,
cocaine & dancin’ at Studio 54,
just like a jungle patrol with ever present
chance of immediate death
or dreadful injury
from claymore mines
or shit-smeared
bunji sticks,
or a bullet from nowhere
that shatters your head
and leaves your brains
all over
the man
behind you.

Oh yes …
no really,
seducing an upcoming starlet
in his luxury pad,
well its just like
coming across
the charred
remains of
napalmed children,
weeping mothers
shell-shocked granmas,
no! … it is!

Oh yes …
dining on rare steaks,
lobster & caviar
in his effort to
impress and
get a piece,
is just like
cold rations,
wet clothes,
& festering
oozing wounds.

Oh yes …
uh huh fa sure,
Trump’s New York days
compare so well
to 58,000 U.S dead
and oh yes,
several million Vietnamese,

Oh yes.
Donald J. Trump,
had it hard,
by God
he did.
