'Kill Or Be Killed' - - Poem by Louie Levy
-first order of our soldier's basic training in Texas
where freshly young, innocent and obedient boys
'Take orders or suffer consequences'
Dog tagged, robotized and uni formed costume sized, .
equipped for a massacre trip to hell and damnation
March to the beat of cadence counting feet and...
...having your betrothed sorrowfully left waiting at home,
family, friends and whom ever proudly depressed
'Brave to be honored, for Peace and Freedom'
Jacketed medals for bull's eye ball scoring,
all is fair with hate and devilish war
Love ne'er be munitions of machine gunned blessing
nor an enemy that becomes another youthful weapon,
void of soul and ill will requited.
So are the contaminants of all malignant armies gone mad,
bombs bursting in air, blood, guts spilled everywhere,
drugs and adrenalin, space aged technology,
night vision enlightened, rocketed grenades,
redemption, forgiven for killing innocent children?
Kill, kill, kill! , led indisciminate by
war lords of preaching political sermons
I'm hit, need a medic,
There was no 911 for help then
Angels are a hoax,
just pray and be radio frequenc'd,
there are no congressional preachers
in foxholes, they hath in their safe sat temples
preached for us to be saved?
While youth under heavenly battlefield thunder
be struck and blundered, just to where are we doomed?
Having our Empathy, Love and be 'Slay fully Reaping '
'War was not, nor will it ever be
the solution for lasting Peace'
WW II Veteran
