opinions of the book Johnny Got His GunJohnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo is a heartbreaking book to say the least. This book not only makes you feel,it really finds a way to get into your head and have you think long and hard. It is a severe understatement to say this is just a cautionary tale of war. This is the eye of nightmare which is known as war. This book becomes more horrifying when you realize this is not just a story that someone thought up. This is a true story of real of events for one unlucky solider named Joe Bonham. As the reader is taken on Bonham's journey he or she will feel things they may never of thought before as far as war goes. Bonham shows the reader that soldiers are human too and can be broken just as much as we civilians can. The moral of Joe Bonham's story is that war is a horrible and evil thing that should never ever be wished upon one another for it does more than damage a country as whole to get what the other wants; war also kills destroys families all across the glob, but sometimes
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
