Product of the Vietnam War
Bandrews

While drunk he described the hauntings
 1
Disturbing his every unconscious dream
 2
In the Vietname War he lived in horror
 3
He stayed perfectly high
 4
Trying to hide behind the heroine, coke and anything
 5
to erae the frightned boy at 18
 6
One night high as a kite
 7
His friends meddled with a granade
 8
Like hot potato it fell in his hands
 9
He threw it as it flamed
 10
A little girl was in the way
 11
It blew off her innocent face
 12
There in pure disbelief he cried
 13
His friends began to laugh with satisfaction
 14
Instead his stomach twisted
 15
He searched for the night high to appease
 16
hicrying need to forget
 17
To this day at 58 the empty vodka bottle
 18
He grips
 19
Exploited, destroyed, the Vietnam Vet with
 20
Sad eyes awkes in the middle of the
 21
Night to exploding bombs
 22
And terrygying screams
 23
Along with one hard laugh
 24
He never can forget.
