M.A.S.H.: Vietnam War poem by Founding Poet Paul Hellweg, Site founder. VietnamWarPoetry.com   Founding Poet:     PAUL HELLWEG   Copyright 2014
  M.A.S.H.

                        His battle dressings
                        seeping red,
                        he looked at me,
                        and his eyes asked:
                        Are you dying?

                        I'm in pain,
                        my look said,
                        but I don't think
                        I'm going to die.

                        Well,
                        his eyes said,
                        I'm going now
                        and if you were too
                        then it wouldn't be
                        so lonely for me.
