Their momma raised an army,
She birth to soldiers
And now they’re both in home,
And now she grieves as her sons went AWOL.
She lost them to a war that they didn’t enlist for.
Street soldiers;
Killed with no warning.
3 years apart in age,
3 years apart and burial services,
And now their mom looks at me as number 3,
And she says “keep my army alive”

  1. From the title I though not some army stuff, been there even write about it from time to time. But yep, nicely written and brought up a good subject as well as a tragic one.

    You should run for office, I´d vote for you.
