Author's Notes

"This poem is to honour everyone that gave the most during all wars on this Veterans Day and Armistice Day. The picture I've used I'm riding in the third huey."

An Asian beauty bathed,

in the light of the moon.

Broke many a man's heart.

Took lives too soon.

Treacherous mistress, from the very start.

We tried to tame her

and got a boot to the heart.

Star-filled sky wasn’t a romantic sign.

Just meant more young brothers were bound to die.

Proud brothers all

bled in our hell.

She whispers in your ear.

You're back under her spell.

Caught tight in her claws.

Her unwanted caress,

holding you in her death roll.

Most of my life.

Truth be told,

I'm still under her spell.

That bitch called Nam.
