Silent Soldier (June 2009) - Poem by Julie Schleppegrell
Just before deployment started in 2008,
I met while in a cisco class, as the router worked to colate,
the life of a soldier, SPC Justin A. Saint,
In time knocked the visitor suffer, who's power seemed oblate,
when it brought its buddy 'the talker' whos silver tongue left a comfortable kind of innate.
That day started with talk of a wartime complaint,
which led to threat of shooting and murder possibly making a date.
It flowed with a grin of sarcasm done to shed some weight,
then parted in plans of my promise to visit that evening sometime between 7 and 8.
Time: 08: 50 (the following morning)
With faces down I wonder what was this au fait
a buddy of battle upset in her usual selfish gait.
It hit me during her bicker that altered her schedule from some soldiers fate.
The sound of the gun blast rang and the pitch of the belltowers caused me to deflate,
while the Omega unmasked the bullet who stole my dear Brothers estate.
I fell in blackness, and, is it over? ? .. still dont recall, how the storm became abate.
In Loving Memory
