2003 Poetry

footsteps echoing tremors

from a band of courageous

yet foolhardy young men

each one daring the devil

struggling to be heeded

the riffle is at ease to

the hand of a young lad

who is a sophomore to the

means and games of the generals

the private lad looked around

the barracks filled with exhausted minds

seeing his superior in clenched teeth

he obeys without any questions
