Dust Off Angel

J Smith

2006

Within the heavens a new star shall shine this night

For each warrior who fell this day

 


But who shell come to the battles edge

Too wade in the rice patty stench and muck

 


To walk in the napalm’s burning flash

As they cradle the fallen within their arms

 


Angels cloaked in garments of war

For they, warriors themselves

 


In battles and times

that have gone before

 


Have stepped from the battles edge

Too lift up and take a brother home
