A poem about torture, written by a Vietnam War Veteran.



© Copyright 2004 Penny Rock All Rights Reserved



Torture once, and torture twice,

And torture once again.

It’s been a long, long day.


Can’t remember so much fun,

We must do this again.

It’s been a long, long day.


It’s just a few of us at play

Don’t make a fuss.

It’s just some silly pranks

We mean no harm.


So, let’s beat, berate, humiliate,

And kill a couple too.

It’s been a long, long day.


We torture them, they torture us,

It’s simply quid pro quo.

It’s been a long, long day.


We up the bet. Why get upset?

It’s like a college haze.

It’s been a long, long day.


You shouldn’t mind a bit if it

Was your own daughter

On the receiving end of friendly slaughter.


So, tell some lies and fabricate

To let your conscience rest.

It’s been a long, long day.




Power of a Clear Mind
