If I Could Have Walked In Your Shoes - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki
Instead of wearing combat boots
trucking through the sands of Iraq
or the snow of the Ardennes in forty-four
the fetid jungles of Guadalcanal
the rice paddies of Korea
or the swamps of the Mekong
I would have been among the few
like you who knew better
than to bear the burden
for the likes of you!
