DAV

BTK is a club they join
it means "below the knee"
one of the less horriffic states 
of being an amputee

The price that's paid by many troops
on battlefields 'round the globe
uniforms of camoflauge
become pajamas and a robe

They learn a whole new language
prosthetics is their word
introducing them to a world
of things they wish they'd never heard

Taking their courage far afield
to keep the enemy from our shore
losing the bloom of youth and health
surrendered up forevermore

We should be proud of these disabled Vets
they stood willing to give it all
now incomplete, missing arms and feet
after answering their nation's call
