The Blood of Heroes Never Dies

A patriotic duty–
young men and young women
sent to Iraq and Afghanistan

Saw the devastation
perpetrated by terrorists
against America

our dead – our young
their caskets draped in flags
their blood spattered on foreign lands

No more – we see their faces
No more – we hear their voices

Take one moment
pin the poppy
remember the loss and mourn —

    • Thank you — It was written as a memorial poem and I wanted to infer the other poem called “The Blood of Heroes Never Dies.” So I guess it worked. 😉
