Memorial Daze

picnic barbecue celebration
full of friends, family, loved ones
music laughter joy fun

what about the one
looking in from outside?
what about the one
without friends
without family
without loved ones
crying sad alone?

you wave your flag
and tie your yellow ribbon
and grab your gun
and swing your crotch
but none of those
makes you more of a man
or a better citizen

what do you hold in your memory?
what will remain when you have gone?
what memorial are you building?
will it be forgotten in a day?

    The saddest thing about those on the outside is that they are often the ones putting themselves there. And of course, they don’t know it.
