Veteran’s Day – 2018

 

 

This day

All flags

Shed

Bloodied shadows

Upon

Sacred soil

Dotted

With stilled crosses.

 

This day

Parades

Weary soldiers

 

Smile

At the few who line the streets

 

March

To familiar cadence

 

Salute

Flag’s half-mast history

 

Weep

As Taps resounds

 

Across

Each generation’s tears.

 

This day

Peace

Will solemnly descend

 

Upon those

Who kept her safe?

 

 

 

John G. Lawless

Veterans DAY:

Oh you blessed souls

That

For us have fallen,

We wish

The loftiest of appreciations for your sacrifice to show

By

Thanking you for the opportunity given to us

To

Enjoy the greatest gift of all

Witch

You have missed:

LIFE!*

STILL A SOLDIER

I lay here today a soldier

I know some don’t understand

I will try to explain

So maybe you can

 

I served my country

For many a year

I retired long ago

The soldier still here

 

I put on my uniform

I wore it to foreign lands

The soldier I was

Is still in the man

 

I have been a husband, father, and friend

To some of you here

But I’ve been a soldier all along

Even after so many a year

 

My final salute

I render today

I’m still a soldier

I’m just on my way

 

INVISIBLE: CO-WRITTEN WITH C DEVONSHIRE

Clad in rags, he wanders on Wall Street

He is invisible to hustling stock brokers

He is a man with no money, no property

A hapless struggler of excessive loan burdens

 

Bitter winter winds blow across Broadway

He is invisible to affluent theatre-goers wearing warm winter coats

He is a man who watches them scurry past the cardboard box that is his bed

Like a rain-dog, huddling in the shadows of alleys and doorways

 

He hears deafening explosions of New Year fireworks

He is invisible to the revelers

He is a man who cowers, recalling gunfire of a war he fought

Echoing through his mind in restless nights

The incessant thumping of traumatic stress

 

He is invisible…a victim of post-Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq

Who once bore a uniform and served his country with pride

He is invisible suffering alone, paying the price

Through severe disabilities and permanent scars

 

With sadness, he watches voters going to the polls

He is invisible, a veteran with no voice in elections

He is a man who cannot vote without an “address”

A placard on a pavement might catch the eye

 

Unemployed, homeless, unseen

But most of all forgotten

He is a man who seems invisible

But he is still a man
