Without Ceremony

We send them out to risk their lives
And then, when they give their all
We hear their names on the news
Without Ceremony, and that's all.

Each should have an Honor Guard
That's shown, for the World to see
That we pay homage to all those
Who died for us and Liberty.

Each, should have their own caisson
To slowly, carry them along
To their final resting place
Where they play, that mournful song.

But, nowadays it seems
That all the Powers that be
Want them to return unnoticed
And, Without Ceremony.

"It's too hard for the Loved Ones."
If, we Honor, their Remains
They say, "Out of sight and mind."
Will help ease all the pains.

But our Government, (and us)
Are doing something that's not right
Sometimes, Without Ceremony
Under the cover, of night.

We have Celebrations
When the rest of them return
But, it's those Brave Fallen
Who could teach us, if, we'd learn.

02-22-2004

They have finally changed the rules
And now, the Families will decide
With whom, and how they'll share
Their Hero's final, solemn, ride.

Thankfulness

Obviousness
Is shadowed
This day by thankfulness.

Observation. Affection. Emotion. Reflection.

And the sun goes down. The night: Cognizant.

A Boy Named Ted

He got the flu and stayed in bed
While he read about bill
A man who lived on a hill
Then said i need to feed my dog Fred

My Poems

Roses are red
Violets are blue
My day brightens when I'm near you


Roses are red
Violets are blue
New Year's Eve is the start of something new

Thankfulness

Obviousness
Is shadowed
This day by thankfulness.

Observation. Affection. Emotion. Reflection.

And the sun goes down. The night: Cognizant.

Chocolate
Chocolate is sweet so is me
Candy smells like Mandy or should it smell like handy.
Chocolate is so sweet, it smells like feet.
Chocolate is so sweet it smells like me.

~Brittany W~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Birdie Flew Away
I once was sitting outside outside outside
I once was sitting outside and saw a baby bird
The baby bird was so cute I walked up close to it even though I was nice.
It went flap flap flap and tweet tweet tweet and flew flew flew away.

~Kyla~

Fuzzy Wuzzy Version 3
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, if Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair then Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy was he?

~Blake~

Im So Special
I'm so special in my very own way Just like the night is different from the day I don't care what other folks say... Cause I'm special in my very own way!

~Chrissy~

Corky the Goat
As Corky the Goat stares around,
Thinking of something to loose some pound.
As he thinks day and night ,
Just thinking of something to make him lite.
Days pass by he grew all fat.
Like an over eatin pussy cat.
Then the farmer gave Corky a pat.
Then he decided to make a mat.

~Rex~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I Like To Be A Pigeon
I see a pigeon from my window.
Sometimes two or three.
After regular intervals they slowly gather dry leaves to make their nest.

~Moushmi~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kitty Kat, Kitty Kat
Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat
Were did you go?
I was in the cow yard visiting Mo
Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat
What did you talk about?
I told him how to get out
Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat
Why did you do that?
He told that I might get fat
Kitty Cat Kitty, We better run cause here he comes!

~Sammie~
