Where do old soldiers rest...?

A soldiers Resting Place
..........

Where the hell am I..?

looks like brimstone red
and fyres galore
and naked doxies
and avaiable whores
for fun and free...
suits me

and plenty grog
for the swilling...
swaying am I
‘mongst depravity thrilling,
defacing restless graves
broadsword brave

where the hell am I..?

no sunrise breaks upon my face
no moon glitters between
scudding clouds
on a summer-lovely night..
no tinkling laughter from a maid
running sweetly to
her loves embrace...

Where am I..?

lyfes mortal sins
medal wins
glory reigns
for a short tale-tell
forever claimed
in a soldiers hell...

Graham...April..2004

This is great- I love your poetry. Makes me feel like I am reading some of the best war poets, like my fave, Wilfred Owen. Excellent work and such a breath of fresh air, not enough poetry like this around.

A warrior though, at heart, so who knows.

The first verse sounds like a fun place to be. Who wouldn't want grog and whores aplenty?

Graham,

Another well crafted one in the sagas.
