Just Because I Said I Do

~~~ Ostracized forsaken place these bars of time no saving grace from whence I came a fence I face around and round no end in chase Just because I said I do I'm seldom excused when postage due No-one to share I stand alone to cheat despair I scratch this poem of matters fact it finds no home amid your care dispense of drone ~~~

I was in the service back in the early 70s, though this piece recalls the battleground at home when I constantly ran out of ammo and the times I spent in prison camp (doghouse) :) thanks for reading

Interesting lines penned..Enjoyed reading this one..It is expressive with short lines but good rhyme..Thanks for the visit to my page..I would not want to get caught under the Weeping Willow in a strong wind for it would switch a person to death..Sara
