memorial day

We woke up well before the dawn
On the last Monday in May
And went to all the soldiers graves
On decoration day

Then in full dress of blue and gold
With sash and badge and pin
We'd clean and trim and place a flag
For all our fallen kin

Day greater than of Four July
We tallied freedoms bill
And cooked upon an open fire
Till all were fully filled

Then to point the morrows morn
And each generation train
That those with decorated grave
Have not fallen in vain
-Beto Ochoa
