Classic Greek Tragedy in America


Jason was an argonaut
Endlessly sailed
The seven seas

Jason the aeronautic
Endlessly toured
Afghanistan & Iraq

Request for relief
Tour of duties fulfilled
Denied – Defy not

Today I see him
Face to face
Clutching his coffin flag

Tuesday at dusk
Narrow back street
Sniper hit his mark

My veil of tears
Too salty & bitter
Into the dust of Arlington
