Soldier


I think maybe soldier I am or was
Soldiers were fooled by your laws
Then crying: “Devil’s at the door”
We took backpack and gun’s bullet
In light of moon I saw him walked

Beat of fear was in my heart
In boot was sand; if not mud
You as bastards in the senate
Spoke loudly supporting war
I shot at him and saw him fall

I dashed ahead fast in jeep’s light
I went close and heard him whine
I took a rock, shattered his bones
I saw blood; running a mess flood
I saw his face, desert and contour

Not back at home
Those times aside
I have the chance
Bastards in senate
You have fooled all

I am ashamed. I took the lives based on your word. I can’t take it. My way is one; to my grave.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
