Turkey Talk w/ a Solider

His uniform looks more tattered than he remembered it
Even in desert sands it looker cleaner than now
In front of 711
On thanksgiving
With hand extended
I drop in thanks
He says
You know
I almost died for these people
"Most don't even look at me like I'm not human."
I almost offered my home but the coward in me quickened
I walk away clearly shaken
He yelled behind
"It's ok I spent my last 3 holidays in hell this ones no different, but thanks  at least I'll be human this year"
