    Warning Will Robinson!

    Feel free to post comments, rants, or even personal attacks. It simply shows your wish for taunting if you do the latter.

    You can say anything you want here. But if you get stupid I reserve the right to point it out, call you lots of inventive names and laugh like hell.

    The Wide Awakes



        "Those Honored Dead"
        "Why do you fly the flag today?"
        My Grandson wants to know.
        I fly it for the graveyards
        Where the countless crosses grow.


        I fly the flag for children
        Whose fathers are a name.
        A half-remembered memory
        of a face within a frame.


        I fly it for the families
        of sons and daughters lost.
        They know the price of liberty
        How terrible the cost!


        I fly the flag for veterans
        who lost their youth in blood.
        And saw their comrades slaughtered
        in the carnage and the mud.


        I fly it for the ones who marched
        In cadence off to war
        To close their eyes forever
        Upon some foreign shore.


        I fly the flag for grief poured out
        Upon a granite wall.
        The laying-on of hands that heals
        The scars within us all.


        I fly it for the sound of Taps---
        That melancholy tune
        That lays to rest those honored dead
        Who always die too soon.
