I combined Mos_590's posts, from another thread, into one. Kind of poetic, I think...
[size=2] if uall served in vietnam or any other conflict,and own an AR u should know what this post is all about u want ar"s cause there posh , they bring u closer to what u missed , well it sounds like this guy didnt miss anything, thats why all u like 16's and thats what its all about ' the ones that knows what is right and the ones who thinks what is wright."God Bless America; and General Patton just like all the crap uall put on ure 15;s when we saw combat it was me and my buddy with gi issue 16;s. against russian made ordanance . 16;s takin out 50;s . shooter and spotter simple stuff. when i was in there there wasnt time for sniper insertion it was u kill them or they kill u . " yeah comin in on a hot LZ and ure not countin on no body but your buddies . Chopper pilot hollerin get ure ass off. takin fire from all directions and lookin up and your world is takin off and dumpin ure but into a whole lotta hurt like u know blood and guts stuff , were u there did u see him fall , did u see his guts splattered all over the place ,did u rush to push his guts back into his stomach and try to tell him hes going to be ok while he looks into your eyes,and u can see all his lifes work and beliefs ;and him putting all his trust and beliefs in you and what u are telling him in his last moments of life u take 911 that is what war is , this is what ure underpayed military faces every day.its nasty and nobody wants to think about it but ,thats the way it is,outa sight outa mind dont work any mor like i said cinncann what ever ure the blood and gore typa person i described the black rifle represents a lotta things and if u own one of them its like guilt by association. ure a baby killer ure a draft dodger and so on ,its the one thing that has stood out decades after it was conceived,and thats why so many people want it u know its like nachos and cheese ps im like all of u on here i have a black rifle. so if im crazy what does that make u . the black rifle is what brought me to this site with all u sane people. so if im a war monger and look up my killing rifle it brings me to all u fine people[/size=2]

Very stream of consciousness, maybe a little "Beat" rush to it, although I don't think Alan Ginsburg would approve.

The punctuation is sublime...

The overall lack of proper capitalization suggests a strong sense of disconnect, of angst... Very Seattle-coffee-shop, with a twist of psycho-lunatic-in-a-mental-ward to top it off. the_reject

Yes, very e e cummings, mixed with a little James Joyce.

You know, I thought of "Ulysses" right away, but most of the words are intelligible here.

No, no, no, NOT ee cummings, but Don Marquis' Archy and Mehitabel. Archy the cockroach is unable to operate the shift key on a typewriter, hence no punctuation and no uppercase. A sample: the cockroach who had been to hell listen to me i have been mobbed almost theres an old simp cockroach here who thinks he has been to hell and all the young cockroaches make a hero out of him and admire him he sits and runs his front feet through his long white beard and tells the story one day he says he crawled into a yawning cavern and suddenly came on a vast abyss full of whirling smoke there was a light at the bottom billows and billows of yellow smoke swirled up at him and through the horrid gloom he saw things with wings flying and dropping and dying they veered and fluttered like damned spirits through that sulphurous mist listen i says to him old man youve never been to hell at all there isn t any hell transmigration is the game i used to be a human vers libre poet and i died and went into a cockroach s body if there was a hell id know it wouldn t i you re irreligious says the old simp combing his whiskers excitedly ancient one i says to him while all those other cockroaches gathered into a ring around us what you beheld was not hell all that was natural some one was fumigating a room and you blundered into it through a crack in the wall atheist he cries and all those young cockroaches cried atheist and made for me if it had not been for freddy the rat i would now be on my way once more i mean killed as a cockroach and transmigrating into something else well that old whitebearded devil is laying for me with his gang he is jealous because i took his glory away from him dont ever tell me insects are any more liberal than humans archy

Not that it matters much but, I am really pissed at this guys attitude! I apologize up front for venting... So, if you haven't slugged it out with the communist machine knee-deep in GI guts, then you are some sort of poser or RAMBO wannabe for owning an AR? If you haven't had the privelage of wrapping a man's intestines in gauze and laying them on a litter next to him then you don't know what horrendous means (from the original thread)? Give me a break. MOS_590, you strike me as the type that takes every opportunity to TELL everyone why you're better than them and why you deserve absolute solemn respect (among other things) from them because of your past actions. I suspect you are also the type to scream 'GIMME GIMME GIMME, I'm a vet!' every chance you get. My father served three, that's 3, tours in Viet Nam with the US Army. He suffers from some mild to moderate nerve & kidney damage traced back to Agent Orange exposure. Despite his injuries, he has always worked full time. He doesn't sit back and collect disability. I think he knows there are others that really need it. He hardly ever talks about his time there, let alone go around telling others they're shit compared to him. I served in the Army as well. However, I did not have to go and fight a war. Despite your opinion, I believe that is a blessing, not a depravation. I don't own ARs because they're posh. I don't own them because I like to stand in my basement in BDUs and face paint and pretend I'm on patrol. I don't own them because Charlie is plottin' on me or because there's gooks in the wire. I own ARs because: A) They're accurate, reliable, and last damn near forever. B) They're a very flexible platform. C) They're fun (admit it). D) They piss the liberals off. E) BECAUSE I CAN So, why not climb down off that pedestal and try meeting other, quite capable and intelligent people on even ground? You might be surprised. I think you'll find that most of us are good people. Maybe even good enough to have served with you...

What the hell kind of critique of poetry is that? Go to the original thread, for that stuff, if you want. Personally, the spelling and grammar tell me not to bother. There his words were foolish. HERE they have beauty...
