Big Orange

Big Orange

By: Garland Davis

I was killed in the Nam,

But, my name does not adorn that wall,

I have not yet died, I still live and,

Walk the streets among you,

I was not killed by the Viet Cong,

Nor by friendly fire,

There should be a wall with names of,

Those whose deaths attribute to the fucking agent,

Known among us as Orange.
