Remember Tomorrow Today~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Remember Tomorrow Today

tomb

“Tomb of the Unknown Soldier #10” by Axel Ventura

halberds and hubris

hatchets and hatreds

armaments dragged

through the terrible

tides of repetitive

ignorant histories

killing fields run with

red wave after wave

humanity’s bloodshed

collected in morbid

black pools in which

drown and dissolve

tragic sacrificed

white bones of youth

reft of innocence

whole generations

the best of us

taken from time to

their premature tombs

stolen links from

the past to the future

great violent gaps in our

means of becoming

more noble more wise

and more civilized

casualties number

the holes in the soul

of society leaving but

evermore woebegone

chance to attain a more

peaceful posterity
