SO WE SHOT
I found this poem to be the most interesting to me. It is talking about all the different things that the soldiers shot in the war. After reading this poem I just thought to my self wow that is really gruesome. Its crazy to find out all the different animals and people that the soldiers shot during the war. He mentioned deer, pigs, turtles, water buffalo, tigers, elephants, and even women and children. For the reason of only boys being boys. It almost saddens me to the point to where i really feel sorry for all those women and children and all those families that were affected by the lost of loved ones. The part of the poem that hit me the most was the very last two sentences where he says "And if that were not enough, we shot each other. Then we went home and shot ourselves". It is a very deep poem and even disturbing to an extent. I enjoyed reading all of his poems he is a very powerful writer.
