Anthony W. Pahl


Do you feel the thump of awful noise as the mortars hit the air?
Can you hear the flash of brilliance as the tracers carve despair?
Will you see the sounds of screaming when the boys return from there?
Are you ready for eternal pain from minds that never care?

I can feel the thump and pounding in my heart!
I can hear the agony as my tracers hit their mark!
I can see the sounds of pain of those who played their part!
And those arrows of rejection will remain forever stark!
