Memorial Day 2021

By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall (Rated PG)

Memorial Day is when we remember our friends
As they were before their fragments were dusted off
While we were watching still the perimeter

Memorial Day is when patriotic men
Who only went to war in a John Wayne film
Preach sacrifice on the five o’clock local

Editors Note: The author is a veteran of the Viet-Nam War.
