Conceptually Similar


Two books of poetry
Summed thoughts
On war’s idiocy


An alumni mag
Hailing the growth
Of an educational venture masking as college


Shrapnel tells different stories
When exploded over the pages
Versus the undercarriage of a Humvee


The donations solicited should suffice
But it seems the tuition and fees are detonating
Any chance of a student’s debt free learning


A common thread of literal loss
One writing propaganda full of heroic tragedy
The other of missions wrought with man’s macabre humor


Recent graduating years stocked full of
Weddings and promotions
My year thin with retirements, obits, and solicitations for “legacies”


The world continues on…
