    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.

Read the full of A Thought On Thought

How Do I Do It?

I can say with rhyme or meter
Thoughts that I would not repeat
Or put into prosaic words-
I would never ever say them that way.

Often they are too complex.
And the feelings cannot be
Expressed in any other way,
In any other ordinary words.
