Traumatic Times

By 1st April 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

Traumatic Times, require Drastic Measures.
When more Traumatic than now,
‘Tommy’ Soldier?

How many tours do you carry out?
Not those around Curium,
Any more.

Just Operational Tours these days
And you know what they say,
About ‘All Work’?

‘Tommy’, if not dead, becomes dull.
No real fun or family times.
PVR or sign off?

If the wars you fight, ‘Tommy’,
Are far, far away,
For who knows what?

Who is watching your back
And your interests,
At home?

When you finally get home, you leave.
No more Traumas, for you.
Or are there?

Time will be the Judge of that,
Not you,
Eh ‘Tommy’?
