Warriors Haiku |The Spring

Updated on March 15, 2011

River Styx has risen

With the blood of my enemies

And also my friends


Come over! They call me

From Styx’s Far Bank they wave

In time my brothers….


Next Mission it calls

Once more I prepare to die

Will boatman call today?

      Not bad. I did my 2 draft years as a wire rat. Didn't get tossed into combat, but half my classmates did. Had our foxhole partners picked out anyway.

      This haiku reminds me so of my uncle who served in Italy during WWII.

      Thank you, Hmrjmr1.
