war they say ...Old poems worth a read being recalled

war is the most expensive
and
useless hobby,
yet some become famous
and
few are rendered rich.

you are a specimen man,
of a variety belonging
to which?

I got a job
as I was useless,
clearing now all human garbage,

'tis worth my while,
as you all know
I smile the entire mile,
as I dance foxtrot
still mighty slow

You are absolutely right,
The soldier’s plight
After they fight
They are left out
In the twilight

Suddenly
Even out of politician’s sight
Because might is right,
And
The soldier isn't able
To exercise his mite

"Light" can only cease to be apparent

everyday I gain more respect for your creativity, I am of the opinion that as of late you have come into your own. Respect to you. You know that I am an ex-warrior?

LIFE ISN'T ABOUT WAITING FOR THE STORM TO PASS
IT'S ABOUT LEARNING HOW TO DANCE IN THE RAIN.
VIVIAN GREENE

How delighted am I to know
My works enlighten
The heart and souls of warriors
I know..,

They feel once after a war
When they come home,
Not divested but deprived
Of a vocation of their own

But I am sure
That no nation does the bravery
And self-less sacrifice
Of warriors disown.

Great are such soldiers and men
They never die
But fade away
Sadly but not in vain

You Sir, have downgraded me

By calling me a peach
But I beseech you
Most folks love to call me
An apple or a rose
As at supersonic speed,
Poetry I compose.

None the less,
As I love to eat a peach,
I shall have a bite
Out of your hand
As it I do reach

Thanks my friend
We are at your beck and call,
You are a soldier,
A warrior after all…

There are some who say nothing every happens regardless of what happens, just wondering,
what happened to one who is Loved?

~A

that prolifacy is not learning,
But that is just my opinion.

I hold that person in great respect for learning that lesson.

cheers,
