REMEMBERING



Not many will remember

on this 5th of November,

“The Golden Gate in 48”

or “Let ‘er drip, there ain’t no ship”



Or “Blow it out your barrack’s bag”

and what is meant when you hear “ TS”

or “Blue Ointment” or “SOS”

or “up yours with a wire brush”

or “home alive in ‘45”

and all that other GI jive.



No one sings “My Buddy” today

or can set “headspace and timing”

or has a clue as to what to do

when a buddy’s lung shot is bubbling



Well, I’m 90 today

and I’m “reupping” and “going all the way”

And so I’m celebrating my birthday

with those of my brothers

who have gone on ahead,

none of whom are really yet dead,

and with all the others, sisters and brothers,

who have their march orders

for this or some other day



SHOCKLEY

====================================================

Obama and Romney--
neither one a veteran
both supporters of the military-industrial complex
and both bound to support
endless war---whether ours or those of Israel
