Army Mom’s Safe Haven


What is the sound a bullet makes
when sent on a journey that a bullet takes?

It sounds a bit like mothers screaming -
it sounds a bit like nurses dreaming

It sounds a lot like ruined lives -
and something like the bees in hives -

A bullet's trajectory has no end
whether stopped by Foe or stopped by Friend -

It just keeps rampaging on its way -
throughout the Ages, night and day.
