This  day to me is  just so real

I  can’t explain  quite how I feel

My heart so full I think  t’will  break

There was so very much at  stake.

Ten thousand lost upon that shore

Who  t’were  not seen  forevermore

My  heart cries out,  I cannot bear

The  deprivation  we did share.

How many dreams were  lost that day

How  many hopes were  snatched away

Oh God above,  please hear this plea

Vouchsafe  this  day of  infamy  !

Today’s  the  day we  do recall

Our heroes brave who scaled the wall

Their actions  all did set us free

They  led  us  on to victory

Remember well how many died

To free us from old Satan’s  pride !

The dawn’s slow rolling o’er the hill

The air is tense, silent and still

This scene is quiet, fast asleep

While we’ve this mission we need keep

The world about is tossed amiss

And chaos rules instead of bliss

When will this peace we’re searching for

Arrive at last at our front door ?

 

 

THE ESCAPE ( 2019 ) 2019/03/24

Far in the distance I can hear

The sound of all the passing trains

The wail that echoes loud and clear

Repeating its wistful refrains,

Across this world the trains hold court

With language we can’t comprehend

In climates cold or damage fraught

Or crises we don’t understand.

Oh sad the trail of distance brings

To circumstance beyond our reach

It is the sound of dying things

The skill of God will soon impeach !

 

THE RECIPE OF WAR ( 2018 ) 2018/12/07

There was a war long time ago

In places that we did not know

So many years now in our past

Proof of length that memories last.

Both young and old were forced to fight

Across the globe or out of sight

A war that simply parried on

Left none untouched here or beyond.

Now I am old but can recall

Those shadows cast upon my wall

With forgotten names that I’d known

Redemptions’ chance all but unknown.

Oh, someone should research this tale

Ere soon we shall completely fail !

SHEER INJUSTICE ( 2018 ) 2018/09/30

There was a man upon the road

Who seemed weighed down by heavy load

With spirits low, his shoulders sagged

And as he walked, his feet they dragged.

Another cause, another place

Perhaps another futile race

Tis sad believing all is lost

His faith and honor are the cost.

Oh Lord above, how can this be

The innocents now deemed guilty

Justice is lost, our nation cries

And all are left with compromise !

Once was a war, the worst we’d had

With consequence both bad and sad

Most of our men who truly tried

Did all they could before they died !
