war hero

he flew beyond the hay fields
over europe
he made it back
though some of them did not

young men
who never saw their tiny children
who lives and dies is more-or-less
by lot

when he came home
he dusted crops and carried
the mail
around the town to everyone

an old man dying
when the old were still young
who left out here an extra

skeleton
