WAR IN HEAVEN?

All paratroopers dreaded getting shot

While drifting down!

So in World War 2, low drop brought

An even bigger frown!

.

.

First one.  I just lay there trying

To find my breath!

No limbs broken, but I hurt

Like near to death!

.

.

I staggered to a friendly home,

They drove me back to base

We lost some in that 250 drop!

Not a happy case.

.

.

Sure, this was a practice not the actual!

Area:  Alabama!

And the 2nd landing, just as bad!

Just who is left as bury-ier!

.

.

The whole thing in those para-jumps

Was so negative,

Our troops did the barge landing

More loss, but take or give.

.

.

More humane in the sounding there,

Just a few of the tougher

Guys did actually volunteer to do

The night jump and suffer!

.

.

Certain, I am one of those,

Believe I played, like, sick.

So I avoided the suicide!

Of course:  a bad trick!

.

.

Among the few left living today

I am ninety-three!

And with an honorable discharge

From United States Army!

.

.

War is not Heaven!  No fighting there,

Loving God and each other!

Not even a family squabble up there,

With sister and brother.

.

.

Face it, this is the home of suffering!

Quite enough for this boy!

How can we ever imagine Heaven?

Where all is peace and joy!

.

.

Impossible to even consider!

Heaven’s happiness!

No hideous wars or tragedy!

Only Godly bliss!
