                               The war is over


The war is over for you, my friend.
The taps was played.
Many soldiers stood near your grave.
A soldier is resting now and he had found peace under six feet of dirt.

I wondered?
Do the dead soldier find peace?
The sound of guns and bombs are silence now for them.
The soldier life of blood and guts left behind.
The war is over for them.

I pour a six pack of Miller high life on a lonely grave.
I told my friend. No winners in war. We were tricked and fooled.
After you stand by a grave of a soldier, a friend who left family and children.
You understand.

Blood demand blood.
War had no conscious.
Men will fight till they can't bleed no-more.

I like how this encompasses how purposeless war is, with no winners and countless unnecessary deaths. I also like how you explained that for some, the chaos of war only ended once they had died. It gives it a more personal feeling when you talk about losing your friend who lost his family and children, it definitely shows the real effects of war.

A frank and naked testament to the futility of the modern war. A fitting tribute to Donald Coyote.

there are never really winners....just survivors....and those who do often are still at war mentally and emotionally and the war doesn't end until they do.
sad and emotional tribute to your friend....beautifully penned...
