Poetry Corner: THE GLASS BUBBLE
12:00 pm CDT May 26, 2019

Here in a VA hospital getting the attention I’ve needed

Soldiers hung on, with torn bodies, crippled and bleeding

Many countrymen, friends and the U.S. deserted us

We fought a long war on the idea that we must.

Greedy political minds plotted, took risks and ignored

We were the game pieces moved on the board

To capture and lose again the same piece of land

Strategic ingenuity killed many at hand.
