April is poetry month

Listening to the Hugh Hewitt Show yesterday, Hugh had Tarzana Joe on the program as he does every friday. Joe pointed out this April is National Poetry Month and that this year extra attention will be given to the poetry of our military personnel.

This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode called The Fatiques in which Elaine promotes Eddy Sherman at Jay Peterman clothing.

Eddy is a veteran and he's written this piece for the catalog;

Eddie (reading): It's a hot night. The mind races. You think about your knife; the only friend who hasn't betrayed you, the only friend who won't be dead by sun up. Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts.

Sounds pretty poetic to me, even though it doesn't rhyme.
