Memorial Day

by Nancy Ellen Abrams

Thank you for the flags Memorial Day
You honor us millions who were slain
But we fought the wars to end the wars
And each time died in vain

Honor is in your flags Memorial Day
But honor is just morphine for your pain
When at last you see that we died in vain
We won’t have died in vain
