Where Have They Gone
They drifted back one at a time, into the World. No music, no drums and no flags unfurled. Most tried to leave their ghosts in Country. Some will live with the sights and sounds of war until the end of time. Some will never return, but in our hearts they will always live in rhyme. Many will be remembered until time stands still, on that black granite wall. They changed their uniforms for civvies and tried to start their lives over with a new call. Some became lawyers Some became Policemen Some became Doctors Some became Nurses Some became Truck drivers Some became Business men Some became Men of God Some became Farmers Some just couldn’t stand the pain But most managed to sustain. And all will be eternal brothers in a faraway time and place called: The Vietnam War.
