For Memorial Day

I will not decorate my door in Red, White nor Blue
This is not the image I wish to portray to you
But rather in browns, grays and colors of gloom
Of Falling, Crashing, Death and Doom

that spill
and flood to the ground
that splatters
without a sound

W i t h o u t a s o u n d

Our troops are out there and until they return
I’ll use colors of Sand, Dirt, Mud and Blood

It’s the least I can do to express my concern
For a nation that has yet to learn

I bow my head, show my respect
It's the colors of this nation that I reject
The Lost, the Missing, the Dead
It's for you I bow my head
To Comrades that fought and carried the burden
I wear the colors of Soldiers, of that I am certain
