The prompt was to write something which should include the following three words courier, delivery and front.


There was once just

A single postal service

Then came the couriers

With their cargo trucks

Ocean crossing fleets of

Huge containers ships

They delivered packages

And almost everything

But this time it’s a different

Shipment on its way

Of arms and ammunition

And soldiers carrying them

As war is delivered

At the front door of homes

Of a lot many unfortunate

Hapless beings
