The War’s Not Over


“I lost my Dad in Vietnam…

The yelling, nightmares, panic –

We lived it – hated it - where he had been,

Machine gunner, Chu Lai 1/4 USMC, ‘66


He’s back now. Mostly. But,

The yelling, nightmares, panic –

I’m sick of it – but please…

I won’t quit on him


I lost my Dad in Vietnam…

But he’s back for a bit –

and I need to go call him…”
