    Hi Fred,
    No, I wasnt in Iraq, but I have spent some time in Darfur and Zimababwe on my travels.
    The poem was inspired by my cousin who was an ATF agent in America till his shooting earlier this year, he taught me so much about combat like that.
    Thanks for your comment, your stuff is amazing too, I am slowly reading through it!

I’m O.K. Jack

Death be nimble,
Death be quick,
Death blow out
My mortal wick.

Death and the Woman
(After Schubert)

Death was not nimble,
Death was not quick,
But death blew out
Her mortal wick
With cancer.
