CAMOUFLAGED an original poem by Jill Corcoran

 

I dream of a world of peace, equality and love. May 2012 be the year my dream comes true. 
CAMOUFLAGED
Camouflaged in
Army greens
United States Sergeant Jesus Martinez
Cruises along Baghdad streets
Feared by enemies
Embraced by Iraqi citizens
Proud missionary of justice, equality and freedom.

Camouflaged in
A t-shirt and jeans
United States Sergeant Jesus Martinez
Cruises along Beverly Hills streets
Feared by shopkeepers
Mistrusted by Anglo citizens
Impatient for his next Tour of Duty.

  5. Followed your Twitter trail and found your blog. Thanks for answering my question re: publisher's interest in picture books written in verse. Re : this post--I just saw a piece on the news about how vet's unemployment rate is 30%, so your poem definitely hits home. Again, thanks for the Twitter chat advice :) !!
