Expressionless, you stand at attention,
At the graveside
Of a fallen comrade.
As the flag is folded,
Handed to his mother
Do you wonder 'why
Him, not me?'
Do you empty your brain of
Afraid to realize that
Today is your birthday
And your friend,
Lying in this coffin
Will forever be

|How do you do this? Delight us with your sparkling wit, humour and fathomless wisdom, knowledge and insight on the one hand - then bring us right into the bleeding heart and mind of a soul in torment - yet coping!! - on the other?! No fuss, no bother, just unselfconscious natural ability and the power to sway the reader with your compelling voice of whatever "flavour". I think you probably have no idea of the authoritative nature of your poetic voice, its influence and far-reaching effects because you are so disarmingly... "humble" isn't quite the right word, cos it sounds too Uriah Heep-y... but natural and unselfconscious (again!) I suppose! Actually, you are a Number 1 Star and I would expect to see YOUR face carved in the face of rocks in Hollywood one day... or at least your smudgy paw-print on the pavement in the High Street! Can taste the blood, sweat and tears in this write, Katy. Bless you and thank you, Kate xx|

|Soldiers have more courage than I could ever muster. They seem to understand more than I will ever be able to. Warriors have been a part of every civilization (interesting how the word civil even applies, isn't it?) as far back as we know. Perhaps, one day, the world will know peace and harmony. Excellent reflective write, Katy.

|That is, unfortunately, war,
Though in our world of today,
It is also in some areas, war to go to the store,
Better to stay in bed and snore,
Though if we do join the Marine Corp,
Unable are we to ignore our responsiblities anymore...RUFUZ & ed
