Turn the channel more.

There it is again as before.

The glory of blood and gore.

Images fill my public mind.

That is a way as never before.

I must be a war star - GALORE !!!!!!

Into the mud and constant fear.

On the river bank a wilted ear.

Part of a forgotten star's life.

War is not that image part.

Over to my left a human heart.

What did theT.V. tube show me ????

WAR WITHOUT PAIN - ONWARD MARCH - INSANE.

Plodding ankle deep in blood.

Just like T.V. soapsuds ads and flub.

My illusion shell broken again.

In my hand - a dead flags land.

Toy lead soldiers under the X-MAS trees.

Rubber ducky - bathtub - floating fleets.

Rocks roll down a slopping hill.

ON THE BOTTOM IS NO THRILL.

 

from my poem book DREAMS 3
