You were sitting outside a Walgreens in downtown, when I saw you
You were wearing layers of tattered clothing protecting yourself
From a harsh winter day, when I saw you
I remember when I first saw you; you were 18, about to go off to war,
So proud of yourself
I remember when I heard the news that you were coming back
You were sitting outside a Walgreens in downtown, when I saw you
Holding a sign saying “handicapped soldier” begging for money when I saw you
You reeked of vodka and urine,
You were missing your legs when I saw you.
You were sitting outside a Walgreens in downtown, when I saw you
