Veterans Day 2015

VFW USA

flushed from caves on okinawa
japs with hair on fire held hands high
over those torches we took for targets;

one night a brit with fists like sledges
cleaned the bar in service of his queen,
cracked yankee noses, shook allied hands;

running under fire near saigon,
dick caught an apple on his navel and
was split in the middle by the grenade.
