MEDIC AND NURSE…

the words themselves, poetic verse.
Medic moving quickly;
nurse dispensing balm,
Morphine, smiles and
Lifesavers…

So went Vietnam.

Author’s Note: I have read in a few places that the medics would sometimes give the wounded Lifesavers if they had nothing else much to comfort them… that’s the reference to the Lifesavers in the poem
