D-Day
(6/6/2021)


Brother Bollocks
marvels
at the bravery
of the past

those heroes
who fought

who died

so that he
could exist
today

undisturbed
within this
contemplative
solitude

perhaps
they would not
believe
that their sacrifices
were honored
if seeing
such a life

what many
might consider
such a waste

but his right
secured
so long ago
he has made
his choice

Brother Bollocks
assures nothing
for those
who follow

neither
brave

nor a
hero

he can only
write about
what he thinks
is right

what he
thinks
is wrong

better
a boot camp
fatality

he now
fades away
in futility
