Courage Of An Anti-Soldier - Poem by Lorena Walker

give me a man
to spread the blood my love shed
all over
and tell me

it was not for me
give me a woman
that turns away from the red, white and blue

and spits on the signs that read
support our troops
give me that man and woman

let them step in front of our soldiers
to stop the war
they won't do it.

    Lorena's versification is attractive. It is a good poem thematically also. (War may not be inevitable. However the soldiers many nations spend sleepless nights for the people to sleep well.) (Report)Reply
