micropoem for the day: military life

In the long ago and the faraway, I spent three years two months and seven days in the United States Air Force. I had a darn good reason for joining. They were going to draft my rear end. Went in on St. Paddy’s Day and got on a bus. As I rode the bus, I am thinking I will just fade into the woodwork. Unfortunately I hadn’t worked on my invisibility skills. There was no hiding from that Drill Instructor. He had my name and number. During my time in the service the best thing was the mail. We soldier boys loved mail.
