TO A BROTHER VETERAN

If I was God I’d cure you,
But I guess this is not true,
Because you still suffer illness,
So I’d do not what God would do.
Yet maybe if we curse him,
Threaten him and say,
“You’d better fix my buddy,
Or you I’m gonna slay!”
I’m trying to say I love you.
And that love might be enough,
That although I’ve never met you,
I can make your body tough…
For I guess because I know you…
It might be just enough.
