McAllen Blues (+1)

Kurt Philip Behm

The invasion upon us

attacked by a neighbor

no village is safe

their scourge overruns


The enemy dressed

as civilian turistas

our border wide open

and freely they come


No shots have been fired

or prisoners taken

the keys to our arsenal

willingly loaned


Our schools now infested

with quotas bespoken  

surrounded and cornered

—the fault but our own


(McAllen Texas: September, 2022)



Tracks Of Attila


When the woods are full of the enemy

—start your fire at their backs

    Dear Kurt,

    • “McAllen Blues”
    My sentiments exactly.

    • “Tracks Of Attila”
    I’m envisioning your 14 words…

    ‘When the woods are full of the enemy
    —start your fire at their backs’

    I’m visualizing the scene!
    I’m so eager to read the entire novel.
