Falklands 82

One More


They’d got another one last night.
He’s given up the ghost,
He’d given up the fight
They found him early this morn.
The gaunt and haunted look upon his face
The rope lay wound around the small and twisted form.
No bullet holes or shrapnel wounds,
No blood, no snot, no gore,
Just another casualty


Of a long forgotten war.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Several young men in their late twenties suffering from PTSD.
Commited suicide prior to parades on the 11 of November 2000.Theirs is an untold chapter in a forgotten war,within the mind.
