I Had To Listen To This Shite. Every Night. During The Course of the Five Years I Lived in Iraq & Afghanistan I Was Rudely Awakened Thusly
And Right ‘Bout The Time I Had Achieved REM Status. Rarely Would I Even Get Outta My Rack. I’d Just Go Right Back To Sleep. Nothing In Iraq Nor Afghanistan Ever Frightened Me.
It Was Just One More of Joni’s Three Great Stimulants. How I Regarded It Anyway. I Had, By That Time, Already Been Around The World

“I am Re-Re Posting This Expanded Version Because I am Wallowing in Self-Pity For not ever ‘Making’ A Daughter. Don’t Bother Reading.

“Maybe I’ll just go away to stay”
Now that that mystery is solved I can move on
