VIETNAM BOB by F.N. Wright

(for richie)

he did two tours
in Vietnam
like so many
he brought home
the nightmares
those sluts
the horrors of war
like so many before him
& those to follow
he died too young.

  1. I want to thank you F.n. Bob would have appreciated your poem, as I very much do. Looking at him in the coffin today, was surreal. Looking at his pictures from ‘Nam, was startling to me. I realized what a young boy he was when he was there. Thank you for all your support too, my brother. Richie

  2. In a few lines, you cut to the heart.
    This is a fine poem
