Sacrifice

I’m thinking about

a coffin draped in an American flag

A fallen soldier & his widow in black

His children grieving over a father

they can’t bring back

Oh it breaks my heart, makes me so mad

That people who don’t have the first clue

about sacrifice like that

treat our heroes w/contempt

& our banner like a rag

Brother Soldiers

When he turned 18,

In some ways he was still a boy,

but he was also a newly minted man

Answering Uncle Sam’s command,

He was shipped off to a foreign land

His uniform & boots were soon covered

in blood,sweat & sand

He felt it was a noble calling to serve his country

so he took that stand…

War changed him in a way some people will never

understand, but he’s glad his brother soldiers can

They were truly a band of heroes
