Looking For Charlie - Poem by Lawerence Mize, Sr.

Looking for Charlie
searching high and low.
Can't seem to find him.
Where did he go?

Went on recons
long range patrols.
Looking for Charlie
gets so old.

He's out in the vills
deep in the bush.
Back at the basecamp
everywhere I look.

His mines take a leg
sometimes and arm.
Though he's never around
still causes such harm.

He's got mortars and rockets
an RPG round or two.
Strikes from out of nowhere
tell me something new.

We shoot at his shadows
At moving blades of grass.
Just want to find him
want to beat his ass.
