Colin F. Jones

Totally & Permanently Disabled War Veterans

We are the living relics,
The empty shells, the damaged.
We are the survivors of war.
We are those who gave our bodies,
To be ravished,
We are our nation’s core.
We are the shrapnel,
The destroyed; the savaged
The violent guns roar.
We are the angry shadows,
Of youth vanquished
The futures door.
We are TPIs uniquely
Veterans of war
