HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM ROGUE GUNNER 2016









`Seasons Greetings`

 The ex soldier sat in the packed bar all alone Drinking his whiskey
 Laughter and youthful exuberance filled the room 
But could not penetrate the armour of his heart 
His back against the wall giving him security With all round defence
 They never noticed him 
He liked it that way
 He was only there in body
 His mind in a war 35 years gone 
The same brown eyes staring into the nothingness 
"Happy New Year" he smiled at the empty glass.
