Fire fight

How very inconsiderate,
dieing in the open;
shirking anonymity
behind the raging green.

You avoided the cacophony,
left random bullets blameless,
then when your God 
abandoned You,
He left

just You,

alone;
refused to leave your ruined face
behind the mangled sandbags,
or in a shallow foxhole,
instead of here,

with Me
