Milan.

By 27th August 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

I saw his picture in the paper,
Milan,
An ordinary looking lad
An ordinary looking soldier
Wearing his uniform with pride,
Smiling, medals on display,
Maybe a good guy
To have a few beers with,
Just one of the lads.

Milan was a Para-Military
Milan was a killer of
Women and children, but
Milan was not born a monster,
Or was he?
