Droplets of Verse: ‘Adrenalin Tourists’

A selfie snapped from the eastern front
A bona fide firefight, not a poolside stunt
Sending postcards home is not so important
When adrenalin tourists wander out from their apartments

They don’t phone home to say, ‘wish you were here’
Khaki fatigues are their essential holiday gear
A bullet in the head is the final souvenir
Left behind, a half finished, ice cold beer
