Kepi Blanc - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

The fort at Zinderneuf is beseiged
rifles crack in the desert air
brothers in kepis blanc
cheer each on
in novel and film

A far cry from the bloody slaughter
that marks a real battle
in the wasteland
that is Iraq
in real time

Troopers in anonymous helmets
suffer and die in deserts
kepi blanc antiquated
death no longer stands
on ceremony
