War, all ‘Cow flop’ (Vietnam, 1971)
War, all ‘Cow flop’
The war in Vietnam was everything that one didn’t understand—
Frankly, I didn’t at all.
They, the Vietnamese, the Vietcong, were a lot of noisy slant-eyed rats in a trap.
The trap that the U.S. and Europe’s industrial Cow flop made (which made millionaires, billionaires).
Although at the time I failed to notice it, that that was a fact.
Soldiering had had an impact on me for war and Vietnam: word for word I never hated the V.C., we
called them gooks, not sure what it meant, perhaps, ‘guerilla’ a word somebody invented to
dehumanize the enemy so we could kill them like rats, swat them life flies
and we did… (three million of them)
Although they did look a tinge pale with secretive eyes, eyes of a wolf—
I didn’t feel warmth or coldness for them, sorry to say, indifference.
Why did I go when I was deferred?
To understand war in spite of everything and to go away far-away!
But it was all cow flop, anyway!
