Name Of A Brother


While walking down a lonely trail,
thinking that Charlie would show
without fail,

I clicked my M-16 on automatic, just as
I rounded a bend, When all of a sudden I heard
that all too familiar clack,of
an Ak-47,who had my back?

Just as that Charlie got off his first round,
I was hit from behind and knocked to the ground.
As I lay there motionless

I realized for certain that I would be dead
if it weren't for another.

And to this day I can't remember his name.

All these years of not knowing has caused me
some shame.

So I come to a wall all filled up with names

For it may be here that appears the name of a
brother who happened one day to save the life
of another
