Thanks to Mr. Charleston, for reminding us all what war is good for,

Absolutely Nothing.

Yesterday I got a letter from my friend fighting in Vietnam

And this is what he had to say:

'Tell all my friends that I'll be coming home soon

My time'll be up some time in June

Don't forget', he said, 'to tell my sweet Mary

Her golden lips are sweet as cherry'

And it came from Vietnam,

Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam

It was just the next day his mother got a telegram

It was addressed from Vietnam

Now mistress Brown, she lives in the USA

And this is what she wrote and said:

'Don't be alarmed', she told me the telegram said

'But mistress Brown your son is dead'

And it came from Vietnam,

Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam Vietnam, Vietnam -

hey - Vietnam

Somebody please stop that war now!

Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam, Vietnam - oh Vietnam, Vietnam -

oh - Vietnam, oh oh oh oh -

somebody please stop it Vietnam, Vietnam -

oh - Vietnam, Vietnam, oh oh oh oh Vietnam -

hey - Vietnam - aha - Vietnam -

oh oh yeah

I wanna say now

somebody stop that war - Vietnam .... - oh yeah, aha ....

There is a famous dead guy, that some go so far as to call The Son of god.

I am Certain if he were to return, as they say he will, he would shake his head and

say Jesus, this is not what i meant at all and take the A train Home.

On a lighter note, this is the Joy a Letter from Home can bring.


  1. War is good for:
    Population control
    Jobs in the defense and armament industry
    Economic Stimulation
    Centralization of government powers
    Testing of new technology and weaponry
    Preparing troops to act without conscience
    Whipping up nationalist fervor
    No millionaire left behind welfare policy
    Furthering the agenda of the elite who would rule the masses

    War has it's place.

    Jesus is alive today remember? That after all is the whole point of his death. He along with God look at the mess of the mass of humanity and shrug. They know what fools we are as a group. I believe they know we are a self correcting problem that will terminate.

  2. "A self-correcting problem"? Isn't that what Alan Greenspan said about the markets WM? I'm sure you're right about the termination part, terminating is something we homo sapiens seem to excel at.

  3. And lets not forget MY all-time personal favorite Country Joe's "I Feel Like I'm Fixin' To Die Rag"

  4. "...for the prospect of fighting is agreeable to those who are strangers to it."

    45h century A.D.

    There is nothing good about it.

  5. WalkingM...you always have a firm grasp on the bright side of life.
    Mr. C...self is about all that is involved in war. If you are the one being shot at.
    MeanDonnaJ...how could anyone forget,

    Come on Wall Street, don't be slow,
    Why man, this is war au-go-go
    There's plenty good money to be made
    By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade,
    But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
    They drop it on the Viet Cong.

    JadedJ...well stated.

  6. and back to the beginning... absolutely nothing.
