An account of a soldiers return home
The blast hit his unarmored door
Pieces of shrapnel struck his arm
But beyond that, there was not too much harm
Like the bombs of the western front, during WWI
Patrolling Bagdad was better when it was done
Was war always this way?
One's true nature shows during the stray
Back at home I forgot what I did
Who I was, and how I lived
