The World That is Located in the Sky

Listen to poem:
The World That is Located in the Sky David J Walker Witnesses all To the fall of Saigon In 75 And after all Was lost or won What we Though we saw Was not at all What we had Seen\or Said/or Done The monsoon rains would Again come And nurture the ferns and palms Of the poisoned jungle The rice paddies plowed by Tractorized buffalo The noisy flow of traffic On Tu Do Street, Paved by elite shoppers Of freedom At a terrible cost The souls lost Across the battlefields Sell their dog tags For passage into Troi - thuong gioi The world that is located in the sky Over Vietnam
