Veterans Day

By John I. Blair

Double eleven day,
The day we ended
The war to end all wars
Only to see a century
Of endless war ensue;
The day when we remember
That freedom's price
Is blood, agony, oblivion
For a sacrificial few.
Much can be forgiven,
But forgetting
All the men and women
Who've paid in tedium and terror
So we could sleep in peace
Would be unforgivable.

2003 John I. Blair
