To you and all
who had to bend
to will and fickle whim of men
who hear a greater call

That takes him far
from whare clutter
wife and smothering child
on ego's breath of freedom

Homecomings brief
he breezes in
the scent of other women
betrayal in shifting eyes

What kind of madness
keeps willing him
to settle like familiar dust
gathered at your feet

To you and all
who fan the flame
of basic home fires burning
shadowed in his glory

What depth of sadness
in scattered dreams
like dandilions torn apart
blown on winds of change.

Truely lyrical. That men should come and go has historically been "acceptable". Women who follow the flag of equality can now likewise rip hearts asunder with their own comings and goings. Unity of spirit will always be met by the legions of temptation. The cycle is, as of yet, unbroken.

Well expressed and clear. But does it ever change? Bill

true, men can be very fickle at times but not if there is a true sense of stability at home and then you're still in for some...

A war protest? It is an honor to serve, It is an even bigger honor to wait for those who serve.

me senses a sight bitterness here and with good reason it sounds.
really Loved this write.
