Beginning of an End - pt.1

Beginning of an End - pt.1

A cold, icy frost has breathed down from the Arctic
And the Avenue is blanketed white
With gleaming rooftops and sidewalks.
People watch their footing all bundled in goose down
As they hurry to finish their holiday shopping.

Young American boys slam bellies against hot sand
Bundled in green fatigues, M16s nestled against shoulders.
Hot, dry sand for miles around
Against a deep blue sky.
There's an emptiness in that sky
A feeling of unrealness.

Slammed against the wall in your long white coat
Another night of call has begun
And you've been hit twice already.
You fight to stay alive but the ideals of medicine
Are dulled by exhaustion and the desire to escape
Into the sunshine once more.

Long ago and far away -
December, Boston
