How would you explain this sentence? The smell of the Bonus Expeditionary Force always comes first: cooking smells, latrine smells. Phew. A clock on the head from Bull’s Eye, for saying that. “What? It stinks!” “Nothing.” Bull’s Eye gets angry easily, at the camp. “What nothing? You hit me.” “Phew, says you. Here’s a hundred thousand men that served your country.” “My country is Mexico.” “Damn you.” “Okay, they served our country.” “And here’s their girls and kids with nothing and no place. All they want is what the government says they got coming. And you say phew.” How would you explain this sentence: All they want is what the government says they got coming? What does ‘got coming’ mean? Thanks!

All they want is what the government promised them, the pensions that they're entitled to.
