Italian Food, and Rewarding Love (For Short Story Slam Week 23)

The war continues its bitterish talks,
Sam is glad to step off his big plane,
It has been exhausting flying above orchards
of snowy clouds, and
glide across the limitless space,
Today he and his comrades have been lucky
in bombing some vital locations of the war zone,
Not much force there to halt their mad crashes,
The plane functions more easily
after it omits all the bullets,
The stars glitter with curious looks,
As Sam enters his camping room,
He is hungry, tired, and thirsty,
How he wishes to hold a bowl of his favorite soup
and eat his well-loved hamburgers:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
He cleans his hands and washes his face,
when he finally comes to the kitchen,
It's such a delight to see his friends there,
Italian Cheese Bread, Pizza, and Miller Beer,
what a surprise when
Maria, his girlfriend pops her face in front of him
and feeds him plates of these yummy food...
Sam decides to forget about the violence during the day so far,
He has everything he wants in front of him...
Life can be tough, but cherishing moments like this
is a true bliss, especially when you are a solider...
