Phillip Coffey - All Missed

ALL MISSED - By Phillip Coffey
'Always have to take what you get'- chewing on his big chaw
Of 'Baccer',"Mammoth Cave" - a real long limestone hole nearby
In South Central Kentucky - cold Green River flowing through it.
Lot of sinkholes in every other direction -he knows all of this.

Never been very far, not ever entering any public National Park
But took oft to serve his country, proud -handed him boxer shorts.
Pretty dress uniform, he never wore- put on the fatigues given.
Fit him quite well, made sure his rifle was clean - incoming bullets - all missed.
