The Bullet

John wore a spent silver bullet

suspended on a chain around his neck

His grandpa once gave it to him,

said “boy treat this w/respect”

Then the old man shared the story of

exactly how he’d come to possess it

He said he got it from a friend,a fellow soldier,

back during The Great War

and though he made it back,

His friend wasn’t around anymore
