War seperates the boys from the men. It can also seperate us from a couple of limbs.

Woke up this morning and put on my hair.
Put in my hearing aide so I could hear.
Put in a contact in my good eye.
Put on my legs so I could drive.
No I’m not old , only twenty one.
This is just a demonstration of what war has done.
Pardon me if I seem to stare,
that’s my glass eye, it goes every where.
I’d like to drink a cup of coffee with you
but my hands shake so bad I might spill it too.
Please let my phone ring longer then most,
with these artificial hands it hard to get these phones to close.
I’m alright , no doubt others have had it worse.
Some are glad to be back alive while others feel it’s a curse……
