I worry that our soldiers feel disenfranchised from our political system as you describe so poignantly in your first haiku, Tomas. How sad that they are away from home during the holiday season. Indeed, we can't forget these men and women. A powerful haiku series, Tomas. Welcome to Poetry Soup! Hope you enjoy sharing work with the many fine poets on this site. Thank you for your kind comment. Peace and blessings, Carolyn
