Bayonet, Combat, Boots

On a battlefield so far away,
those marching soldiers never play,
all scanning the horizon,
a target in question,
freedom defender,
with their rifle,
bayonet,
combat
boots.

    Hi Richard! I enjoyed reading your poem. This isn't an acrostic, though. I believe it's a nonet. I hope you don't mind me pointing this out. I just thought you should know. Check out the forms section on this site. Looking forward to reading more of your work. Love, Kim

    I think it might read a little better without the comma after combat. It is an excellent little poem. Whoah! Hugs, catie :)
