War

By Joshua Adair Wadford


(Reprint from group of previous issues lost in the crash during Fall 1999)

What is War?
War's grinding nuts
War is binding guts
War is smoking guns
War is crying loved ones.

Does it make sense?
No.
Humans are just dense.
Will you die?
Will you survive?
Try harder than hard
or
Die harder than hard.

Why must we go through this?
Me, I prefer ... Bliss.

April 1998 Joshua Adair Wadford

(Joshua is currently serving in the U.S. Army. He is the grandson of Mary, has served in Germany, and presently serves in Ft. Bliss, Texas. Since this was originally printed, he has become the proud father of a son, Trenton Adair Wadford. More bliss.)
