War Stories for a Wednesday

When the cry goes out –
“The war has started!” –
rest assured, somewhere
the fun has begun.

 

In a galaxy just south of here
there’s a religion that says after you die,
even if you “go to the bad place,”
you can still get out if you know how
to “Hot-wire dead excuses.”

 

For his first wartime declaration,
this one kid stood and said,
“The biggest problem with ritual
is its repetition.”

 

For most people
during wartime
there are too many
things to think about;
at least “all at once”;
at least in “one lifetime”;
at least that’s what they say…

 

A fellow over at the front (perhaps doing apprenticeship as a sore head), says he’s decided life’s not all that bad, except for the more cumbersome aspects of its spatial nature.
