Ranger School

A Poem by The Warrior Poet
"

True hunger heightens all the senses

Ranger School

 

Taste the acrid salt of your own sweat, as gnawing hunger heightens the senses to a point where you can smell your own body odor and feel the ridges of your own fingerprints…  A single meal in three days drops into an empty pit doing little to curb the constant, catabolic craving.  And after days without sleep it comes anyway as a dull film over the brain that clouds thoughts and carries dizzy swirls of cloudy darkness through your vision.
