Cracker Barrel Fires 73 Year Old Vet For Giving A Homeless Man A Muffin--Homeless Man Not A Moose

A rule is a rule but Cracker Barrel comes across as heartless and cheap
Firing this 73 year old Vet seems really a remedy too steep
A far better way would be to have deducted from his pay check the muffin's cost
Not into the unemployment line this man tossed
Cracker Barrel's statement is amazing on what it did not say
An opportunity for its corporate generosity to come into play
A statement on how much food it gives to food banks
Would have helped keep their reputation from going into the tank
Cracker Barrel already has when it comes to gays a bad reputation to possess
Firing a Vet for an act of charity should cause its image further distress 
After all a homeless man is not a hungry Moose
Giving him a muffin would not cause demands for more to be set loose.
