Real to many.
REALITY

He heard the rifle crack
Felt a pain in his back
Then woke up in his sack.
Dreaming...

Lying on the ground dead
Is what the medic said
Eyes open, again in bed.
Dreaming...

Wounded flesh smells like rot
Wonders for what he fought
Wakes on a Red Cross cot.
Dreaming...

Stumbling through the door
Drunk, doesn't care anymore
Spent the night on the floor.
Reality...
