ANTI-WAR POETPOURRI





War on Terra not firma
Dead manís floating above see-level
Burrowed foxhole bunker quicksand traps
Gritty hourglass overturned into years


War against Violins strings attached
Fret stretched truths horsehair bows
Lone Ranger conductors re-orchestrating 1812
Overture loose cannons wielding batons


War of Whirled coercion coalition
Dizzy foolhardy spin face-saving turnabout
Promised rotation demoralizing fatigued troops
Departed on schedule never arrived


Dr. Charles Frederickson
