Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Well I’m Going To Tell…
I feel strongly for my country and the beliefs it was built upon,
Therefore, I will fight for what I believe in, my hope is not gone.
Barack O’Bama repealed an act that should have been left alone,
Yet, this one affects me, it hits close to home.
Throughout history men have done the fighting in wars and many have died,
To this fact not a soul could bide.
I am not undermining women though, for their role is the same,
But, the fact that they cannot serve infantry positions is America using its brain.
The Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Policy is over twenty years old,

And that should be enough to bring people back to reality.
This policy still gave them the ability to fight,
And even with this loophole, I don’t feel that it’s right.
If women cannot serve on the front lines,
Then homosexuals shouldn’t be an exception, just because of what the policy inclines.
I don’t wish to know their orientation,
For America is my nation.
And the laws and rules by which it was created,
Are still in effect, they have not faded.
The army is an upper echelon of people,
It shouldn’t allow those who are against the principles in which I kneel for at a steeple.
The Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Policy gave homosexuals more rights than it should have,
I would’ve voted against it if I could’ve.
Homosexuals do provide more service people for the army, but I’d rather keep them out,
Because the army is for excellence, and they cannot comprehend what that’s about.
Yet, with the policy in place, no one had to know, it made the world a better place,
But, now that it is repealed, it makes our army look like a disgrace.
In my opinion, the policy gave them too much, yet I accepted it,
But, now we have a president who cares more about being popular than of using
