While at Basic Training . . .

My face was aflame 
As my drill sergeant glared
At the held up chair
Clutched by my weighted down hands
And everyone noticed
Because of yesterday’s exhaustions
When I fell asleep
To the interesting lecture
Which was caught by an instructor
So that’s how to get forced
To hold up a chair
When you fall asleep
Because of the day before activities
When all I did
Was want to become a soldier.
