The War II

 

 

Ruined. Evacuated. Wounded. Casualties.

Bombs. Rockets. Both sides -- Allied, enemy.

Icy roads. Tanks. Trucks. Jeeps...

Wide opened eyes. Nobody could sleep!

 

Storm. Snow. Air drops. Convoys. Cargo.

Ambulance. Medical supplies. Dead soldiers...

Hospitals. Battle ships. Refugees.

Marine Corps. Air Forces. Army. Navy.

 

Parachutes. Fights. The terrible cold!

Long road to hell! Soldiers. Unknown.

Peace. Justice. Nightmare.

Communists. Freedom. Who cares?

 

Is that a war? War! War! War!

Nobody knows. Itís too far.

 

(Germantown, March 3, 1998)
