Mad About The Nam

He was back in Vietnam.
A Vietnamese man
had given him
a particularly hearty reception.
So glad to see you Americans!
Everything you left here still works.
There are still some hard feelings
but the fact that they could forgive us
fascinates him
The war seems to be over for them.
He doesn't think
it’s over in his own country.
It’s not over for him.
Vietnam won't be over for us
until we all die,
He makes no bones
about what the Vietnam experience
did to him --
