He Said He Had A Friend

	Dear Mom and Dad, 
		The war is done, my task is through, but there is something great 
	I must ask of you. I have a friend, oh such a friend he has no home you 
	see, and I would like to bring him home with me. 

	Dear Son, 
		We don't mind if someone comes home with you, I'm sure he can stay 
	with us perhaps a week or two. 

	Dear Mom, 
		There's something you must know. Now please don't be alarmed, my 
	friend was in a battle recently, in which he lost an arm. 

	Dear Son, 
		Don't be afraid to bring him home with you. Perhaps he can stay a 
	week or two. 

	Dear Mom, 
		But mom he's not just a friend, he's like a brother too, that's 
	why I want him to be with us and to be a son to you. Before you give your 
	answer mom, I really don't want to beg, but my friend fought in a battle, 
	in which he lost a leg. 

	Dear Son, 
		It hurts so much to give this answer son, but my answer must be 
	no, for your dad and I have no time for a boy who'd be crippled so. 

	So months go by, a letter comes that says their son has died, and when 
	they read the cause of death, the shock was suicide. 

	Days later, when the casket was draped in our country's flag, they saw
	their son lying there without an arm or leg. 

	Wishing then they had accepted the friend!
