After a recent trip to the nation's Capitol, Robert Westwood was inspired to share this poem with DOD members and friends.


Negative gloom in DC 

but still a great city.

Lots of tourists

and wow, they are busy.


Busy enjoying the sites

But many are wondering 

How could this happen

So very much pondering.


Justice, liberty, freedom

What's this all about?

How could some mock

and many still pout.


Some Americans don't get it --

The gift of democracy.

So many voted 

to show their hypocrisy.


Some stayed home 

and took things for granted

While others worked hard 

For something else to be planted.


There is so much to do

And Congressman Raul

Is our savior and hope --

He needs our help, we must not mope.


Do whatever we can 

To change things around.

We must celebrate Fall 18

Commit, focus: we are bound.
