Totally Stumped By It All-(Part II)


Totally stumped II

Totally stumped,
he lay in a puddle
of his own excrement,
holding a bottle of
Jack Daniels to his lips,
by merely using  
the pressure
of his wrist stubs.

Sober meant   the recollections
of a roadside bomb,
courtesy of an insurgency,
that removed all his limbs,
from any hope of a family tree.
Now just a body and a head
he is often found dozing
under 100 proof protection
from the soul numbing facts
that he will never get to
first base again,
because he is first base.
