Best Poem of John Shea

Saving A Soldier

I found him in mud colored red by the blood
Breathing but weak not able to speak
Surrounded by eerie lights of battle out of sight
He shook like a leaf I felt his grief
We wandered till dawn to find friendly forces
Our only food insects were the main courses
He never spoke but I shared a smoke
He took a toke and smiled
He knew he was safe with one of his mates
War is truly hell and we both lived to tell.
