Poetry #303
(published November 9, 2006)
Fighting Spirt
by Daniel S. Irwin
I had joined the military
With all the enthusiasm
A seventeen-year-old
Could muster.
I was gonna do my part.
Win the war, give
Vile disgusting foreigners
The opportunity to feel
The wrath of a great nation.
I wonder to what extent
My days buffing floors,
Doing KP, and cuttin' grass
Helped bring that about?
