'Dreaming men
Are haunted men.'

When I read those words.
I thought could it be so easy to remember the Que Song valley.
In a vision/dream as I saw it when we were op con to the 5th Marines on operation Cochise.
A few months after returning from my second deployment to Vietnam.

To live or die.
Fate inclined.'

Words that might cheer some of us suffering 'survivor guilt'.
Why am I alive when many other men were wounded and died?

There was another vision/dream a few months later.
I could see us traveling down Anderson Trail.
That ran in front of Bravo Battery 11th Marines.
Where we were stationed in early 1967.
In a 6 x 6, us on one side.
Our enemy on the other side.
Between us were some 'politicians'.
That we would pick one and throw him out the back of the 6 x 6.
Was it my mind telling me, that the politicians.
Had play both of us for FOOLS.
We were killing each other because of words.
That politicians, had spoked.
No bigger FOOLS than those that heed words.
Spoken by 'politicians'.

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Virtual reality.
Is the term used to describe a three-dimensional.
