Vietnam-Inspired Poetry
Recently my English and US History classes have synched up, as they both are covering the Vietnam War. For English class I had to write some poetry that was inspired by the book we are reading, Fallen Angels. I have written a multi-verse limerick, an 8-verse haiku, 2 diamente poems, an acrostic, and a concrete poem. I am most proud of my limerick, so I decided to post it here. It doesn't have a title, though, so just enjoy.

Here lies a man
A scared young man
Who waits for the woman in white
He walks towards his days
In an angelic haze
But his soul is lost to the night

Here lies a soldier
A scared young soldier
Whose fears ran away and came true
A rose on his grave
In the home of the brave
Was killed for the Red, White, and Blue

Salute to the boy
That scared young boy
Salute to his final parade
That sudden attack
Like a knife in his back
He joins the immortal brigade

Say goodbye to the man
This scared young man
Who is welcomed by men of the past
The truth of this game
Brings a terrible pain
This man will not be the last

I might post more soon, so keep checking back. Skrapz out!
