‘Thank you for your ‘Special’ service’


‘Thank you for your service!’

People say to military vets

Without thinking twice

Paying their meals to forget

But in this year of covid-19

As truckers drive to stores

clerks greet them like heroes

As they disgorge their wares

They give them Lysol and hot wings

But big truck stops go one better

For every 50-gallon fill-up

They promise a real come-getter:

Called ‘A Free Trucker Special’*

A BBQ burger or one e-cig vapor

Plus what all now really crave

A free roll of toilet paper!
