Dani Sandal’s Benevolence of Forgetting

Most wars are class wars. Send all the sons and daughters of American congress people and then maybe they will think a bit about putting greed before human life!!

Dani Sandal’s Anti-War poem kicks ass. 

As Genesis says 

Each war contains within it the seeds of a fresh war

Sodden plums and purple hearts. Finger painting of beet juice and bird feathers. Dog Tags are kicked into the skulls of fallen soldiers.Their skulls, the longest lasting fossil of discovery.

Your breast laden with tarnished Purple Hearts and your mind heavy as sodden plum rotting in the jungle where you buried your own brothers’ bones and carefully kicked silver tags to split skull for the miracle of recovery.”
