I type the poem for you

Birthday

Geronimo.
I jumped into the world
No parachute. Bootless,
falling into enemy territory
into the night (had my eyes closed).
Didn't take them long to find me
These suicide missions are all the same
Name? Not yet. Unit? 82nd Newborn, ha ha
Slapped me around a bit
but I didn't talk
Made sure I wouldn't escape
Sentenced me to life. I guess I deserved it.

  5. "Enemy territory" is cynical but "Suicide missions" refers to the fact that we start dieing at birth and "slapped me around a bit" just refers to the doctor spanking the baby to make it breath.
