Viet Nam War in Poetry

Viet Nam War in Poetry

An American Sonnet

If freedom is Heaven on Earth,
Then communism is Hell
If freedom is hope,
Then communism is despair
If freedom is man’s happiness,
Then communism his sufferings
If freedom is life,
Then communism is death.
The Vietnam Veteran Wall lives on
The Berlin Wall has perished
We, free citizens of the world,
Yearn to see Vietnam’s future cherished.

Let go of Uncle Ho’s oppression
Let God lead our liberty mission.
