Thank You


Not sure If Im deserving of a Thank you
NOt really sure what I should say back to you

A Thank you Here A Thank you There
Please dont Thank me Cause im not happy here

Not really trying to be mean, just a little confussed
Not saying as a joke, if you think so please dont be amused

    This short, succinct, powerful poem reflects the brutal reality of War and the severe emotional toll and ravages...it inflicts on all Soldiers.

    It is so understandable, when, at times, a 'Thank you! ' is TOO much of an out-of touch, bubblegum, alien...niceity, for a brave Man (who's in the midst of Hell) ...to hear.
    ''Oh, Lord! What mayhem + tragedies, those eyes of yours, must see.''

    Daniel, your words are riveting! ! ! ! !

    (A limit of only 10 marks...seems so un-fair. This poem is a Blue Ribbon Winner!)
