WHY?

You gave your knees

for your country

and most of

your mind

 your spirit

your soul


You ran through jungles

dodging grenades

stabbing the enemy

not knowing who

or where they were

you witnessed gangrene

agent orange

death


You won medals


You hero


You flew home wounded

on wooden sticks

you leaned

from the door of your plane


the soft pulp of tomato

felt hard

against your face


twenty years

the question

unanswered in

your mind

your spirit

your soul
