A glimpse

Mortars fall
Just about 18
Sirens wail
Sitting in the bunkard
Waiting for an all clear
Over the radio
All you hear is
We’ve got casulties
Head out
to building 128
Where a person lies
Shrapnel to the whole right side
and to top it off
an open head wound
Stop the bleeding
Package him up
and head out
Hospital as destination
All the while mortars fall
Head inside
Treat the wounded and wait for the next call
Ten more patients
and the mortars stop
My job is done
I head back to my room
And think of the chaos
That I just took part of
and relax
waiting for the call
to head back out
and treat the unknown
