2. His Sky

His sky can never be blue

His clouds will always be grey

His air will always be ash

These visions won't go away

His eyes will always be haunted

His friends will never come back

The war man limps along the road

All his possessions in his sack


He sees their agony in the water of the duck pond

He hears their screams in the teenagers playing songs

He smells their burning flesh in the vegetable aisle

What has been done to his friends, what wrongs?

He feels their cold skin on the kitchen tiles

He tastes their blood on the food he eats

The war man remembers those who once were

Their downfall after talk of heroic feats
