A hundred and fifty dead [korean war--l952] - poetry
There I sat, ninety-five amount weather
Outside; the bookstore café, was cool.
An Old Timer stood by me, explaining:
"There were two-hundred of us on the Island,
Near North Korea, back in '52-
We guarded 16,000-prisners?
"All of a sudden, all hell broke loose
Three-hundred North Koreans came
Over the bob-wired fence, in pursuit
"It all happened in a be important of seconds
The machineguns killed 150-of them
That's all I saw in the war of '52.
(One American hurt one concussion. )
"Now we had to fingerprint them all!"
The old timer said; exhaustedly;
As if he was to do it all over again?
But they were just old memories unearthed;
Resurrected for a moment, from the
Sands of that diminutive horse-shoe island.
"But I guess I'll never forget," he said with
No regrets!. . . as he moved on looking
For his table, where he left his coffee.
Notes: as a War Experienced person I used to meet a lot of old timers from an mixed bag of wars, at one time, WWII seemed to be the one I meet the most from; beforehand that, it used to be WWI (when I was a kid); very few from the Korean War (but now and then I meet one), and a few from Vietnam; where I was. Funny it seems, most of these groups are appropriate more scarce, above all WWI, and the Korean War; or so it seems. Now we have three more wars to look at: Persian Gulf One, Afghanistan War and Persian Gulf Two (it seems, all in a be relevant of a decade); and I ought to mention, the Bosnian War, which my son was complicated with; I guess I will not run out of War Veterans to talk to. It is also funny; we stop the greatest war on record, the Vietnam War, only to put back it with the four-wars I mentioned. Oh well, that is life is it not.

Key Largo - Frater Albertus
Key Largo:The fans turn idly in front of the doorThey open wide screening mangroves galoreAn egret in the everglades stalks its preyHaltingly it walks along its wayOn a different cheerful and sunny dayA woman's floppy hat shades her beauty not so brittleThe silky-smooth scarf that holds the hat flutters just a littleShe pauses in the threshold of the doorSurveying what she's looking forShe is looking above-board at meHer beauty flaunted all to see.'Where are you from?' while noticing I had a frownOn the other couch she gracefully sits downIn the small hotel lobby bar'A city north and very far.
Kafka lands resurrected in Crewe deposited by a shiny alien craft, And at the same time as he is wondering what to do He is asked to show his pass Or pay an minute one off fine At a cash machine of his choice And they are read-through all the time On his irises face and voice.And of choice they find that he is not, They ascertain he just cannot be there, Although he seems as if he is visible, And has hands and toes and hair, If he is not on the Great Data Bank, He plainly and cleanly cannot be, He is not programmed and he is not ranked He is clearly not like you and me.
