"Et tu, Brute?"
(When A Viet Vet Came Home)
I conjure you not to betray me
For you, I was harmed in standing up to my family.
I conjure you to leave me alone in my sleep
My back has many times been stabbed so deep.

Ron Kovic, "Born on the Fourth of July", in wheelchair, reads my poem "Dear Daddy":
"He came to Vietnam from America
Where the Statue of Liberty stands,
Helping the South stop the North
From stealing the precious piece of lands."
--Third stanza, Dear Daddy
