IT WAS ONLY VACATION
Hot on the trail of history
at places like Gettysburg and
we fought pitched battles on difficult ground.
Valley Forge or Virginia Beach ?
Monticello or Mini-Golf ?
Pickett's Charge slowed to a crawl
as our battle hurtled through
the American night, on monotonous miles
of a bloodied Interstate.
