Such a Tart

Pretty as you please,
Laid out luscious and sultry,
Looks are deceiving.

They may seem alike
But each brings her own delight.
Watch out for those tarts.

Brother-in-arms
Greeted with open arms,
Briefly disarmed
By disarming the ones you love.

But nighttime sounds of armaments
Break through the arms of Morpheus;
Can’t keep the memories of war
At arm’s length.

Thank you for your service*
And how you brought us peace,
Shouldn’t we do more
To help pick up your pieces?
