Hunting

Posted in Uncategorized by johnsontoms on July 24, 2011

Survival means different things

when you go from hunting food to hunting Charlie in the woods.

 

We’re back in Vietnam but this time we’re well fed

Because the taxpayers keep signing off by simply turning their heads.

 

While the planes fill the sky the human condition goes unchanged.

Cells phones haven’t given us soul mates,

Bombs haven’t given us cause

to stay alive any longer if we’ve solved our hunger

to search for answers to the questions no one even asks

because on the television they said the money would last.
