Dead Vietnam Vet

Back from Vietnam dead
he struggled to fit in
the old neighborhood did not accept him
his best friends said nah
he never had a girlfriend
so that was no big deal
dead men don't get that horny anyway
so welcome fucking home Pete
sorry we can't make you feel alive
but dead is dead and this country
must make room for the Vietnamese
who are coming back in your place
