This man has given
everything he has
has given
so many years of his life
for you.
To protect you.
And you have the nerve -
the sheer audacity -
to fight?
Your petty argument
(I don't care what it was about)
is so disrespectful.
This man stands watching
as you beat each other to the ground
in a cafeteria.
You fight for your honor?
He fights for your rights.
For his country.
For you.
And you disrespect him.
