Scorched Earth


Good God!
Outrageous!
To think of it!
Total destruction!
In the Image of God! ?
Check the mirror much?
What have we done?
Agent Orange?
Or Blue?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have an uncle who is a Vietnam veteran and
is still experiencing health problems from Agent Orange exposure.
Because it is such a recent 'military exercise', my mind is boggled
at the use of scorched earth tactics against a country that never attacked the U.S. and am shocked to see that there are people living in my time (especially Christians) who believe that the Vietnam war was right or moral in any sense.
