MEMORIAL DAY

One day to remember, six month of battle,

Stuff I will never forget!

Trudging those paths through unseen dangers

Not hard to remember yet!

.

.

Sure, this is the day to remember

As though I ever forgot!

Though I miss lay stuff I am not supposed to

Do not recall, sure, forgot a lot.

.

.

Received an address promptly forgot,

Important to remember.

Highly respected individual it is

Missing I discover!

.

.

I searched everywhere, every pocket of

Clothes worn recently

Not to be found.  How explain my lack of

Responsibility?

.

.

Confirmed forgotten this sad sack

Cannot blame anyone who

Would chose to forget such relationship

As existed between the two.

.

.

But, of course, remembering quite a lot,

Especially wartime events.

Should have been killed so I would be remembered

As there are not many comments—

.

.

About the existing fortunates

Who struggling, made the scene

To tell all about the gory stuff

That really happened unseen!

.

.

Unheard, unseen by the media

Unpublished left unsaid!

Like, over the hill to escape!

Much better off dead!

.

.

But still live on to regret

Some saw it with their very eyes.

Robbed a wealthy Filipino man

Clubbed him, left to let die.

.

.

Then discharged to live as criminal!

Maybe electric chair he inherits,

To murder seems so easy!

Overseas America compare it!

.

.

Crime so easy for criminal

Killing you must in war!

Keep it up, get away with it

But saved!  To kill no more!

.

.

Sam, Honorable discharge!
