    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!

A Thought On Thought

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

Every Man To His Taste

Some people like adventure-
They play at Erroll Flynn.
I have a different nature-
I don’t have that little gene.
I like a noisy kitchen, and
a bed that’s nice and clean,
and showers when I need them,
and a quiet planned routine.
Some say “it sounds so boring”,
