Most Damaging of All Was the Moving
Most damaging of all was the moving
It exasperated all other things
It prevented us children from grooving
In ways that guard against normal life stings
Your childhood was tragically painful
In the smallest of American towns
Your escape was a career of travel
To distant posts located the world round
You robbed us of home, friends, and family
America, neighbors, and learning life
Emotional growth and stability
In their stead you placed perpetual strife
    To escape your small town family strain
    On us you visited a world of pain.
