Eulogy II.

Updated on January 21, 2012

Eulogy.

©-MFB III

I saw a young man die,
and in his eyes
reflecting upward,
through those
final moments
left,
there were many
would of beens
leaking,
from the corners
of his
oriental eyes.
Blood and saline,
mixed into
the elixir
of all life,
passing in rivulets
over stubbled
cheeks.

His hands they
fluttered
like the
wings of moths,
struck by
the burning light,
set in the blackness
of demise.
His legs moved
over pastures
never run,
restless to be up,
or gone,
but
beyond that choice,
all else failed
and...........

he was gone,
before I knew
he had stopped
sucking abundant air,
into insufficient organs.
I closed his eyes
and left him lie,
within dense
jungle foilage.
Perhaps he
lies there still,
his jaw
agape in wonder
at what wasn't.
Small chunk of
lead remains,
amidst bones
s c a t t e r e d.
The temple
of his flesh
long since passed
into oblivion.

      It's time to come home, we have tried and failed to make democratic, twenty-two countries in our insistance on promoting freedom to all. Afghanistan and Iraq are theocratic societies, and will never welcome such change.

      Secure our borders to any and all from such regions, we can live without then entering our country and violently making changes here as well, one should have to eat a bit of pork

      and pork juice in order to enter the U.S. rendering them no longer able to become a martyr, since the pork makes them unclean in God's sight, and then they are no longer eligible for 72 virgins and eternal bliss. We are not barbaric enough to truly destroy the bin laden clans, so let us destroy their faith instead. Peace to You and yours. I owe you several comments which I will get to tomorrow.
