QUESTIONS?

So you want to delve into my mind
And see what makes me tick
As you sit behind your wooden desk
Chewing on your leaded pencil stick

Did you kill or did you maim?
Do you have any sorrowful regrets?
Do you drink or do nasty drugs?
Do you smoke cigarettes?

Are you divorced, do you move around?
Are you mean to your wife and kids?
Do you feel at loss with reality?
What was it like while you were on the skids?

Do you have night sweats or toss and turn?
Do you wake up with the chills?
Do you search rooftops in parking lots?
Have you any people skills?

Why did you come here, to this VA?
What is it we can do for you?
I’ll listen and nod my balding head
Wondering if all I’ve said is true

At last my eyes meet your spectacled gourd
As you glance up from your golden computer
And in my mind I feel I’ve had a meeting
With the long dead commie Fuhrer

You’ve judged me quick and judged me fast
Read all these faults as though from a script
Why don’t you pack yourself up in your leather bag?
And book your own watered down guilt trip

I came, I saw, you hemmed and hawed
While I sat there quietly and un-amused
I stood up and walked out for fear of exploding
‘Cause dear shrink you lit my fuse

You know not of what you speak of
Your jargon is just one long obnoxious cliché
So before I rip your head off and shit down your neck
You have yourself a peachy day…

Bub – bye now!

Author’s Note: Let me share with you my PTSD experience with my appointed VA shrink. I have since quit that program because I felt worse after I went to see him than before I walked in. I’ll settle for high blood pressure.

RENEWAL

There’s rust on the rifle
Holes in the old canteen
Jungle fatigues have faded
As many a warriors dream

Spit and polish soiled and muddied
shined brass is tainted and brown
Ribbons of war packed away in a drawer
Much like the historic men of Saigon town

Once sharper than a K-bar
Our instincts alive and well
We lived to die, refused to cry
No matter what the bloody hell

The helmets that we once cooked in
now heavy and obsolete
The jungle boots rotted and gone
no longer shod our feet

But The Wall of glassy Granite
Solid as the day that it was built
reflects the image and the loss of life
cuts like a knife shoved to the hilt

Unlike the aged soldier
who gazes upon the face
of the names etched deep within the rock
appear without disgrace

We are bound by blood and bound by war
bound together by our youth
still today that strength remains
An undeniable truth

I stand in the distance just out of sight
behind an ocean of salty tears
yet even time and space cannot separate
For my heart keeps returning here

“My heart keeps returning here”
The pain of youth renewed

This song makes me cry every time I hear it! Especially the part where it talks about Tell Dad I don't regret that I followed in his shoes!

My sincere thanks to the veterans of Pearl Harbor, and to all of our brave men and women in uniform, past and present.

Pearl Harbor Day - Dec. 7, 1941, was "a day that would live in infamy."

Remember the battles,

remember the heroes,

remember those who...

were lost that day!

Pearl Harbor :by Tom Zart

Sunday, December the seventh,
In the year of 1941,
While most of Hawaii still slept,
Came the planes of the Rising Sun.

Waves of bombers and fighters flew,
From the decks of the Japanese ships.
While our planes were still on the ground,
"Banzai" was spoken from their lips.

The winds of war had been blowing
Across the oceans of our earth,
Though not till Pearl had been bombed,
Did we realize what freedom's worth.

Wars are fought and won on two fronts,
At home and on the battle line.
Both are equally important,
When war consumes our heart and mind.

The attack brought us World War II,
With death, pain and separation.
All who had served were well aware
Of their sacrifice for nation.

ROUND TRIP TOUR

Search the trees
search the ground
search right and left
but don’t turn around

Brothers got your back
point mans got the lead
one wrong step
could make your brother bleed

Pendulum spikes hung on a vine
spider trap hides VC
bamboo sticks deep in a hole
sniper fire but no one sees

Eyes wide open
sweat on your brow
If you live another day
you got to wonder how

Night time comes
you dig ‘em down
deep enough to escape
them mortar rounds

Rifle in your hand
helmet on your head
you learn to survive
or you learn to be dead

Morning breaks
up comes the sun
thirteen months
and my tour will be done

Thirteen months
and my tour will be done.

Thirty-two years later
feeling the heat of the sun
My tour’s still not over
My war still ain’t won
