A memorial day poem on J.F.K.'s birthday|
A man should live his life
with honor and rigorous vigor
and when he dies be blessed
with the long sleep of eternity
There are those we never forget
What a great man was J.F.K.
What a difference he would have made
It is a shame to shoot a man down that way
He was a fun loving yet serious man
Look at so many of us now
getting methed coked and iced
Not me I still respect J.F.K.
There is nothing a poet can write
that has not already been written about
To say the same thing a little differently
is the best we can hope for
However with music it is different
thee are many beautiful songs
waiting yet to be written
that would have been a blessing
( I joined the army in May of 1962 at 17
and was sent to Fort Meade, Md. I was
ecstatic to be so close to Jack and Jackie.
Nov.22 1963 was the end of my happiness.
God bless all our poor veterans wounded
and killed in America's wars when all many
of them wee looking for was a job where they
could have something to eat and a place to sleep
