Haiku/Gesundheit (Volume X)

there's nothing funny about an anti-establishment haiku
(inspired by a recent article on allen ginsberg's howl)

you sent my brother
to afghanistan without
boots, gloves or gun scopes

you sent a local
boy to iraq (but returned
only his body)

you sent my cousin
to vietnam when others
were off to college

and then you sent him
to bosnia, years later,
to investigate

war crimes where no one
but yourself is innocent:
or no one ever

so guilty.
