Markova Comfort Gay

Philippines 2001

Seen 30 May 2011

Who would have guessed
That comfort women would encompass
The other woman too

A disposition
An attraction
To one and the same
Might be fun and worthwhile
In times of peace

But in war

The memories are still intact
The survivor still makes his rounds
Visiting, comforting
Comrades in arms

Whether others believe in the tale
He has lived through an episode
A tragic phase in his life

Survive, that he does
With humour and candour
Those are his tools
To carry on to another day
