Compassionate Sacrifice

by | May 26, 2009 | Poetry | 0 comments

wrapped in shrouds of silence
coffins draped in once
proud colors arrive secretly,
unseen lest they disturb
patriotic citizens who
sacrifice peace of mind
while watching the nightly news

so much stuff to worry about…
who will be the next American Idol
what about Paris, Brittany
how much shopping will help the war effort
where to make dinner reservations

stick another Save Our Troops decal
on the rear of the car for all to see

War is truly hell!
