Soldier Recruiting [Come On God! ].........[an informal recruiting session, overheard]

I’m sitting in a coffee house,
an outcast from my home.
I brought pen and paper,
and I’ll let my mind now roam.

In walk two young men with a.....
third man, still young....but older.
The third man is dressed in camouflage;
he is a U.S. Army soldier.
They sit not far from me, where I......
can hear......much of what they say.
The soldier is pitching that, for a bright future,
the Army is the way......
to go.

The words PAY, BENEFITS, and RETIREMENT,
and TRAVEL I do hear,
but what I don’t hear are the words:
WAR, KILLING, DEATH, ...........and FEAR.
[Well sure not all soldiers get involved directly....
with fighting for a living.
And I know, for many people, military service.....
is considered patriotic giving.]

{I think now they’re discussing paintball wars,
practice for wars more real.
Damn it! If God were such a great leader,
why couldn’t PEACE, not War.......be the Daily Deal? }

    Recruiting soldier is another form of employment to earn money! It's a killing business! Your question at the end -why couldn’t PEACE, not War.......be the Daily Deal? should kindle thoughts on peace in the minds of men for good! Wish to see that day......! ! !

    An excellent write. Witty, cynical and insightful a perfect mix in equal measure.
