Poem of the Day 2: In Honor of My Family Members Who Served, June 6, 2019

Uncle Arch

Uncle Arch was gassed in World War I.

And he would fall asleep

in strange places.

If he wasn’t actively involved in what was going on.

Uncle Arch would fall asleep.

They said it was the gas

that made him do it.

The gas that filled the trenches…

Maybe he slept because he was just so relaxed

because

he

didn’t have to worry about

anybody

shooting

him.
