I Fear’d The Drumbeats Marching

I see

A stupid dog

I almost feel

An angry hand

I listen to music I cannot stand

Then

I make excuses

For

What is the use of watching

Reflections

Die in the sand

I hear the sparrow humming

I hear the drumbeat

Coming

I fear the likelihood of it repeating

I look to the sky

For an unseen hand

While I’m eating

Eating

Eating

Just to halt the movement

To frighten the land

Though I’m a believer

I know the Earth’s round

My Last Thought On The Battlefield - by Joe Wood (2010)

Who is the first to cry Over a flood of spoiled meat When we've buttoned up their coats and flak-jackets Who is willing to die in the street When you're passing up the barracks In a comfortable seat Seeing the roadside isn't...

A Whimper During the Whirlwind

When I was about 18 and in college, I assumed that things would just work a certain way, and that a road would just unveil itself and invite me to follow it.  To beg me.  "Please, Mr. Wood, we need...

Lights and Mirrors on The Mall

I have no idea what I watched yesterday. I felt a creepy feeling as I watched.  I recognized many of the faces.  I recognized the words, the place, and even the backdrop felt familiar.  But all put together, in the...

Who Am I

Sometimes I think I am Donald Draper.  Sometimes playing it cool and knowing more than I actually do gets me through a few moments, until I realize that nothing is actually ever certain.    Sometimes a church is a...
