Going Beddy-bye on the Cambodian Border

Day is done Drops the Sun Ditch to dig Blisters big Armpits white Biceps tight Watchband stinks Neck with kinks Pills to pop Round of shots Waving hands Chopper lands Some hot meals Skin mags sealed Mail sacks tossed Soaked books glossed DEFCONS set Ammo checked Circle made Guards' gaze laid

In my hootch Dreams let loose

Big cigar Chauffeured car Steel pot not Shower hot Steaks and eggs Luscious legs Pillow soft Nonsense talk Red flashlight Lets me sight: Green fetters Love letters Jungle roots Gashed wet boots Air mattress New tactics Leaden feet-Fast to sleep!
