Hark! Veterans

Veterans Day comes rolling round
and I'm afraid to stand my ground

but not all said things are true
about the colors of RED WHITE and BLUE

the flag has different meaning of
what we have been believing

while RED in its noble valor stands as
blood to spill and blood that falls

WHITE is innocence and purity

BLUE royalty and peacock like
in its preening it stands for perseverance and believing

we owe tribute to the soldiers who fought for cause
and stand today

in front of us for life's a maze
of facts of thought and actions

and I have to say to all the Veterans here today
Harken! Veterans hear my call for
blood has spilt and more will fall
so gather here today and thank the Lord for life
that has been given
