Viet Nam (acrostic)
by Paul Puskarich

          Visceral feelings bleed from their souls.
          Instincts revisit primal origins.
          Equanimity was key, or demise
          Took its toll.

          Never did they -- never will they again -- experience such
          Men -- hardened men -- turned to animals.
