WAR



WAR……..
Three letters
As young soldiers
Modern day Gladiators
We coveted
These three letters
Watching Vietnam War films
Clutching a tin of lager
We blurred the cinematic bloodshed
WAR……Its here
Hip Hip Hooray
Willingly we went
More green grist to the mill
Crack open another tinny
We are f**** Supermen
“Burp”

My latest poem showing how Naive we were as young soldiers.
