INTERNATIONAL POLITICAL CRISIS

By Charles Hazell, Army

Writing Type: Poem

The jungles of Vietnam, jungles of Africa,
The mountains of Afghanistan or the desert of Saddam,
The playing field you played on or are playing on
Makes no difference.
Death is an equal opportunist who does not discriminate.
How dare the political Chess Masters of Foreign Affairs
Continue to use youth,
Future leaders of' democracy an d f'r ee do m as pawns'.l
Who thought of this idea?
Enough is enough.
Now the Chess Masters have decreed
If our combat brothers have not served six months,
Full benefits will not be.
Is this rea11y fair?
Life expectancy on the combat line is not guaranteed.
And if you do return no matter how much time was spent,
Welcome to the world of trauma, PTSD.
