Prisoner of War
(c)Dennis Johnson

I am a P O W
Still waiting here today.

In a war that no one wanted
I was lost and left behind.
With news of me discounted
Truth and honor; hard to find.

With other's words and labels, my fate was not discovered.
MIA - Missing in Action
KIA - Killed in Action
KIA(bnr) (that's Body Not Recovered).

Does the "Star Spangled Banner" continue to wave
O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
Or is all that blasé,

Do you still wear forget-me-nots?

Forevermore does my soul dwell
In the land that truth forgot.

I am a P O W
Still waiting here today.
