“Golden Years” War

By Ronald Nash, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By Ronald Nash

VA Medical Center--Cincinnati, OH


Mortar fire explodes in my mind;

Napalm blisters my senses.

A time machine within hurls me

back to another place, a foreign land.

 

Anguished screams from the maimed

and dying permeate my very being.

Senseless death and destruction.

WHY?

 

You said it was not war.

I think you called it, “Conflict,”

marching,

as you burned “Old Glory” to the ground.

 

Reality remains unchanged.

What was not called war

is now and evermore…

abiding inside of me.
