Believe this country, believe this;
argue Afghanistan or any other
war ‘til you’re blue in the face,
but in any case,
believe words in granite—
should they make it back
age 20 or 25, injured, whole,
body, mind, heart,
dead or alive—
not one of them
returns young,
not one.

(I’ve witnessed with my own eyes).
