Shannon Pierce's War Poem
By Shannon Pierce
Genre: Poetry Level: High School 10-12
Category: Student Examples

Deliverance came
shot with a single bullet
marines assembled

American soldiers
three weeks or captivity
they would have killed us.

Sight of their loved ones
were told of being beaten
closed in on Baghdad
