    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!

Best Poem of Fred Babbin

A Thought On Thought

I think that all higher animals - primates, mammalian and ornithic pets, etc. 'think' to a certain extent.

Why do I think?
There is no alternative.
I am condemned to think,
To be obsessed with thinking—
But so is my dog.

I am so pregnant
with you, poems-
I work so hard to give you birth.
I love you all
as a child is loved…
And though I cannot be a mother,
I have surely brought you forth.
We can always dance together-
You will be my rest and comfort-
You will be my good resource.
You will make me feel alive.
