Spangler's Spring

The guests of Spangler's Spring
     on the night of the second
  fought for their lives
               over water
 and killed to drink it
            to have it years later
   reduced to stories of
      canteen exchange
         and friendly words
            to enemy strangers
But it was cursing
     and potshots all night
 killing and dying for water
     to realize the futility of war
  and the horrible beauty of life
