War Story

I could never pluck up the courage
to ask him about the war
the topic always being somewhat hardcore:
not something he wanted to encourage.

Sometimes, after some duration,
he'd bring up the Old Comrades Association,
speaking slowly, methodically,
of the dinners he was invited to, periodically.

One more mountain to climb.
One less place set each time.
