Todd - Poem by Suki Nakamura

he serves in afghanistan
leaving a four-month old baby behind
to an asian mother
alone

& lonely.
in the name of money he fights the war
the government call him a patriot
a man serving the cause of peace
and humanity
the protector of the world
from a terrorist stance

he writes a letter
to his wife and kid and if you read every word in it
mind you
nothing is mentioned at all
about his alleged mission for world peace

it is all in the name of job, and family and his future.
