Memorial Day 2020
The sun is out and very bright.
Flags are flying everywhere in sight.
Barbecues coals are starting to glow.
We’re all dressed up with nowhere to go.
The freedoms our heroes died for
Are currently quite out the door.
The government controls are in place
to keep “healthy” masks on our face.
We must keep ourselves distant
so we are all virus resistant.
It is getting to be too much
to hear we must live in fear and such.
My tolerance is at zero.
So I plan to honor a hero
today by taking a long walk,
then finding someone with whom I can talk
about how great life can be every day
because of the lives our heroes lost for the U.S.A.
