Camo-Clad Angels: A Memorial Day Poem

Lest terrors and bondage eclipse freedom’s sunOur camo-clad angels bore missile and gun. Their plowshares they beat into death-dealing swords To battle for peace ‘gainst tyrannical lords. The blood in their veins pulsed red, white, and blue, And shed it they did, for their country, for you. So hallow the memory and honor the name Of all those who fell to keep freedom aflame.
