Battlefield Confession

by Allen Taylor

Battlefield Confession was written in July 2005 while stationed in Iraq with the 2/112 AR, Texas Army National. It was subsequently published in the Spring 2006 in Small Brushes, Adept Press.

    I have been to war That much is true Though halfway I can say at best; And when the day is done I turn out the light And sleep cozy in my nest. Iíve ridden hard the battle That most men adore And would fight the good fight again; But to be honest and fair Iíd like to admit That Iíve never killed a man. ĎTis true, and Iíll say it again; Itís not so bad, Iím half a pound glad Not to have killed a man.
