Veterans Day Poems
Veterans have claims upon the hearts
Even of those who railed against their wars.
The years of sacrifice transcend the cause,
Endured through agonies no word imparts.
Reason cannot comprehend such hell,
As strangers murder strangers out of duty.
Nor does the bleak, obscene, nightmarish beauty
Stop haunting dreams that love and rage compel.
Decency demands we do them honor,
Albeit with a hatred of the horror
Yet rampaging through joy, alive and well.
– Barry Taylor.
Veterans have served their time in hell,
Emerging on the sunny side of pain,
Taking with them always shards of night.
Even in the midst of their delight,
Rich in all that love and luck can gain,
Armies rise that know their weakness well.
Now death joins the damned ones in the dell
‘Ere our circle seal them from the slain,
Sundering their longing from our light.
Days and years diminish not the blight,
As only those who’ve been there can explain,
Yet walking by the side of those who fell.
Veterans of wars unjust or just
Equally deserve consideration,
Their anger, hatred, fear, and livid lust
Equally in service to their nation.
Remember that the battlefield remains
A place where murder is one’s daily duty.
Nor can one be so brutal without stains
Seeping into one’s one well of beauty.
Do, then, pay them homage due, for they
Are heroes, though their bitter battles may
Yield nothing but their bitterness for booty.
