Kimler, Forest L., compiler / editor; Yoshihiko Satake, illustrator

Boondock bards

printed in Tokyo for the Pacific Stars and Stripes, APO San Francisco. 1968, 122p., monochrome fullpage drawings, first collected edition. 7x4.5 inch decorated paper boards in same-design dj, the unclipped dj is somewhat edgeworn and toned, the casing has minute bumps at most extremities. Good copy. Sample poem begins: "The M-16. / Overnight we inherited our third arm. It's needed day and night to protect us from harm / Initiated by an enemy unseen, In this land afar from ours with only sea between." The poet continues in the same vein, then taps compassion: "He wanted not to bring the grief / That fell upon those whom he fought. / But he knows that they must be taught / That as long as this aggression remains seen, / They will have to face a blazing M-16" --poem is placed opposite Satake's sketch of the weapon. Editor's brief intro identifies common themes: the soldier's "war which surrounds him, his rifle, his dog, the hippies on the home front, the loved ones he longs to be with again"
