It Was Hell I Tell You (limerick)

Updated on December 1, 2013

When son asked what was medal for

I told him I earned it in war

When troops at the border

Rained bullets and mortar

At office I’d order them more

      War is hell, that is what they all say.

      A bit of levity eases the strain of this hideous war.

      Thank you, Martin.
