THE BEST CARE PACKAGE I EVER GOT

Inside the box a letter reads: Dear Ted,
when shelling from the mortars gets too heavy,
light up one of these here cigars and steady
yourself and let the dead bury the dead.

These Playboys, they ain’t just for you to read,
make sure they see their use in your platoon.
Make sure they’re passed around the room
and that you lend them out when there’s a need.

This bandana is for the times when, faced
with too much shit to do from your squad leader,
or somehow Hadji’s got inside the wire,
tie it around your head and just lay waste

to everything like I did back in Nam.
Soon you’ll be home and lonely. Uncle Sam.
