War Is Hell

These days he lives simply, working on cars

He wears tattoos to cover scars

He got as a soldier in the Persian Gulf War

He’s pleased that he served his country well

but will be the first to tell you war is hell

Brother Soldiers

When he turned 18,

In some ways he was still a boy,

but he was also a newly minted man

Answering Uncle Sam’s command,

He was shipped off to a foreign land

His uniform & boots were soon covered

in blood,sweat & sand

He felt it was a noble calling to serve his country

so he took that stand…

War changed him in a way some people will never

understand, but he’s glad his brother soldiers can

They were truly a band of heroes
