Silent Soldiers

Row by row

File by file

I passed down the ranks of the soldiers.

Straight ahead they looked

Never moving a muscle

Faces hard as marble

Unyielding as stone.

.

Each had done his duty

They now were going home

Stiffly at attention

Each with a flag—

A color guard of silent soldiers.

.

I blinked for only a moment

They were dead on their feet

A cemetery of men

Faithful to the end

But the end came too soon.

.

Now their caskets

Row by row

File by file

I pass down the ranks of the soldiers.

Their eyes forever closed

Their faces forever still

Hard as marble,

Unyielding as stone.

.

My silent soldiers.

does it really...hmmm...

so you spent all that money

on that big shiny ad

telling me how you can handle the budget

and your trip to nordstrom’s

and you say you’ll cut spending

…whose first?

i want to vote for

someone who is passionate about

children

poverty

environment

fairness

not someone who gives lip service to

important issues

and tongue service to the staff

.

i want to find someone who will run

the government like i run my home

care for each part

each person

not some agenda from corporate sponsors

who may have money

but whose veins run cold

or hate-filled people

who think no one but themselves

is worth life

.

but if i vote for you

will you keep your promises?

.

i thought not.
