"If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose."


warrior boy of twenty years old,
smile as wide as the sun--
this little man has been deployed,
strong hands holding a gun.

not old enough to have a beer,
or to buy drinks at a bar
but old enough to bleed red, white, and blue
his ashes sent home in a jar.
