Hungry

Sat down one night to Discuss, The insomniac brain Discouraged, From the Disgust, Of Devising, This Divine, Poem of Destiny, In this Densely, Populated and Dramatic, Population of the Drastic, Totally, Droopy, Down in the Dumps, Over the long lost Dunes, On the sandy coast of Djibouti, Among the long lost June Days, Watching early…

Bomb On The Night Sky

Staring over hazy sand expand over the horizon, Sun blasted stone, seared wormwood blushed by solar wind, Fire worn, dehydrated sand, wisping daggers on the wind, Heavy boot crunching worn bone, Crumbling buildings, stone to ash, ash to grass, Growing up amongst the cracks, Overgrowing humanity, as the planet sways, Nuclear blast, Atomic Wave, Bi-Catastrophic,…

(Work In Progress: Memorial Day)

She came down from Heavens Pearly Gate, Waving the peace flag over war torn battlefield, Battle chiefs meet, Generals gab over tooth worn cigars, Brokering peace over broken lands, Giving way to hate filled warlords, Terror runs rampant again, As the world turns its back, And faces new tribulations, The rich playing games, With the…

Despair

Despair, despair, despair, Despair for the world, As war wages and the multitudes shout, Moving the tidal buldge, Under their mighty armaments, Despair, despair a world controlled by Tyrants, Fools, and the like, Despair, for the hunger, The famine that eats the mighty, Casting the weak like chaff, As Tyrants eat a plenty, Despair, for…

The Whale

In Northeastern woods I walk, The trails lay miles behind me, Each step a journey towards my manhood, Each step a victory toward my warrior status, Each journey a vision matching my sailor heritage, Sailors blood pumping through my veins, On seas of courage, Swimming with Krakens, Yelling in the face of the vicious misstress,…

Battle Cry

Trumpets flare as blood lands, In the angry face of Adversity, Justice stabs as victims bleed, Laying on the field of, Empty vices, wasting away, Hollow, void of responsibility, Stand and fight, Bellow and stomp your feet, Raise your guard high, And shout your battle cry.

On Our Way Home

One of my favorite photos, were in formation on our way home from the OIF & OEF war in 2003. Our ship participated in both theaters of operation. USS ANZIO CG-68 named after the Beach Head and Battle of Anzio in WWII that allowed the Allies to take foothold in Italy and move north to…

Casualty

Camel over hallowed vale, Dune of scarcity, Looming doom, full of empty rooms, Dust filled caverns, Traffic at a stand still, No water, no fuel, food to scarce to consume, Onwards through steel vale, Whistling winds and poisonous fumes, Overtaking store front fare, Danger whispers on the air, Shifting, breaking, popping, Hissing from below, Gun…

Veteran’s Perspective

Scared, sitting behind a screen, Death, toil, struggle, Never to be unseen, Watching the world become trampled. War, a difficult concept, A world of people, Caught in a disgusting trap, Lost in a phycological whirlpool. A world engaged, Behind insane weapons, Crosshairs enraged, Bursting shots upon… A wild enemy indeed.

Mission

Rolling out again, Boots hitting dusty ground, Take that rifle and hit the sand, Ground and pound, Lift this, lift that, Run about a lot, Hot, sticky sweat, Never washes off, Stuck in deserted waste, Don’t worry about moving with haste, Sun beating down, Sweat on tanned brow, Numb brain, Dehydrating sun, Missions to plan,…
