Tasting Freedom

from responses by
the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment (2008)
in Fort Greeley, Alaska,
to a recent survey on new Meals Ready to Eat.

The vanilla pudding is so good I ripped it open,
licked the inside, and rolled around on top of
it like a dog.
Am I supposed to add water to the peanut but-
ter dessert?
Shitcan the meat chunk and give out more granola.
I don't personally like the cheese, but I can
trade with it.
Should add Copenhagen dip.
Why in God's name would you put a vegetable in
a MRE?
It sounded like a flatulence symphony in my
tent all night.
The way it turned my mouth blue flooded my
mind with childhood memories, and for a
moment I was at peace.
