The Price Of Orders That Destroy.

The price of the orders that destroyed.

 

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

 

When the colonel

 

was held captive

by his own death,

 

it's ravenous face revealed

all the men he

 

had sacrificed to it

 

over the years

 

of his commands

in the name of

 

some long lost cause.

Deep in the black orbs

 

of that hooded countenance

he saw what each fallen

 

soldier could have been,

and what they could have done.

 

 

unfortunately he was shown that

one of them was to be a doctor

who would have gone to med school

 

and then entered research

 

and studied oncology cultures

 

that would have led him to

 

having found the cure for

the cancer that had eaten away

 

almost all of

the good colonels

 

prostrate and colon.

Thus the colonel 

 

sent to death

 

a man who in the future

 

would have Instituted 

his salvation

 

and  so he was consumed

that evening gasping

 

his last breath

 

through  the stench



of his own bowels

 

and then joining the ranks

 

of all who had gone before him
