No Sniveling

We’re out of soul

And other things, too

When the most important thing

We carry

Is BBQ sauce, a TV remote,

Tickets to a Giants game.

On Memorial Day, who complains

Because the meat’s too done

Or the traffic slows

Or the store lacks his favorite

Such or so?

When what

Is lost is so much more

Than a troop or two

Or a thousand souls.

Families last when memories

Do,

So will soldiers live

Anew.

When people adopt

The attitude

Of humble kindness

And selfless gratitude,

Let’s honor truly, eh?
