PEACETIME WAR HERO – 艾蒿

PEACETIME WAR HERO

you don’t have money
but you’ve got to buy an apartment
in the end you choose a unit
next to an army factory
national territory
should be a good deal
and rather safe
when you move in you realize
they have test explosions
every day at irregular intervals
it’s like you’re in a war zone
first you hear the roar
then your family members
start screaming
they keep shooting until
one day
artillery shells shatter your windows
your aluminum ceiling panels
your furniture
then they hit you
lying in hospital
you’re a real casualty
funny thing is
you don’t get a medal
and you can’t leave the army
