“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

The Tamarind Tree of Camp Tchomia
Thursday, December 22, 2005
Colossal Sentinel of Camp
Long You Have Watched The Land
Lofty, Alluring Tamarind Tree
Like A Siren – A Rustling Song To Me

Beguiled, I Lay A Hand
Ancient Barks, Please, No Offend
My Veneration Is Such
The Final Gesture Is To Touch

Branches As Straight As Mother Trunk
Silhouetted Against Morning Sun
And Gently Swaying Luscious Crown
Such Nature’s Wonders Here Is Found

Strife And Wars This Land of Tears
Amidst These Turmoil, For Thee I Fear
Your Wellness, We Hold The Key
If Harm Be Done – It Is We

Your Generosity Is Legendary
Your Beauty, No Other Can Carry
These Should Soften Even Hardened Souls
I Pray None Shall Ever Be Your Foe

Lake Albert, Cooling Breeze You Bring
Providing For An All Year Spring
Soothing Tamarind, Aged And Prime
And Tree, It’s Still Long To Come Your Time

Though My Travels Will Soon Do Us Part
Tamarind Tree Shall Forever Be In My Heart
When Load Gets Heavy, You I Shall Picture
Thank You Almighty For This Beauty of Nature
