Veterans' Day Poem

A Poem for Our Soldiers Lest terrors and evils eclipse freedom's sun Our camo-clad angels wield missile and gun. Their plowshares they beat into death-dealing swords To battle for peace 'gainst tyrannical lords. The blood in their veins pulses red, white, and blue, And shed it they will, for their country, for you. So hallow the memory and honor the name Of all those who fight to keep freedom aflame.
