Charles J. Ingerson: Silence In Combat
Photo ©Copyright 2012 by Charles J. Ingerson
Heard the rolling thunder
drums and fifes long ago
bugles in the morning air
then in the evening taps;

While marching and drill
horses to be tamed to ride
shouting and screaming
closing in combat close;

Today is heard silence
jungles and swamps alive
deserts and wildernesses
house to house to house;

Day and night engaged
enemy disguised within
hiding in religious clothes
creating silence in combat!
