Time-Warp Déjà vu

Time-Warp Deja vu


NVA and Vietcong
War time on the daily news
Tet and Quesan blues
Body count and Green Beret
Mai Lai Kent State and Hue
America Love It Or Leave It
See it and fucking believe it
Dump Johnson ‘68
And how the hell can I relate
To a woman of wits
Joan Baez’s tits
Jane Fonda’s birdlike song

From Poems of the New Old West, Jack Purcell, copyright 2002
