3000 miles from 3am

You're 3000 mile away
its 6 am
I'm in my own bed
dead asleep
my phone rings
its 3am
but your voice could wake me from a coma
you're 3000 miles away
and its only 3am

On the front line stands a man 
to give last breath

He walks in death’s dark shadow

a keen watchman
fulfills solemn oath
who watches out for him?

Aung San Suu Kyi

Flower in People’s Heart

Arrested! Contained! Remanded just the body
The iron heart will never, never surrender
The tip of the people's arrow for democracy
Flower in heart will blossom over dictators!

Short Patriotic poem by Steve Eng| Details | |


Rifles rattle,
Armies battle
On the plain,
Getting glory,
Grief, or gory
Colored pain.

Conscripts giving
Up their living 
For a patriotic bed
That is bag-shaped,
Shrouded, flag-draped:
Blue, white, red.

The Premature Death Of A Patriotic Redneck

“I’m telling you the God’s honest truth;
Mohammed is the Devil’s son. 
Can I get a big amen on that good people?
Who in the fricking fracking hell
threw that hot dang grenade in here?”
May you forever rest in peace Bubba Ray.

Hinomaru - Japanese flag

   rising blood red sun -
   spatters mount Fuji as
   whalers fly flag

I wrote this poem to try to write what a country's flag might
represent to an individual.  I love whales and dolphins so this
is what it represents to me.

No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.

United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

Soldiers Girlfriend

I’m proud of the man in front of me

Dressed in his ACUs

But i miss the guy you use to be

Blue Jeans and your boots.

I miss the way you drive your truck

i miss the sweet soft stares.

I miss the man you use to be

I’m not sure hes still there

The windows of the mind,
In the eyes I find,
Written in them,
Is a poem,
Of sanity or insanity,
Of turbulence or tranquility,
Of uncanny mind;
Of patriotic pride,
Of gallant valour,
Of bashful amour,
Of beauty of the Youth,
Of   resplendent Truth.

The Patriotic Traitor

Cares he does for all human life
Standing for free will costs a price
Heavy burden felt deep in heart
Decision made man over State 

Majority rule, only fool
Born not a sheep amongst the wolves 
A shepherd cast in wolf clothing
By the wolves whom have captured ewe

Devil take mother and sisters
I'll lay my life down at borders

Hand Over Heart

Hand over heart, when our National Athem starts,
taught from a child, and we sang every part.
Word for word as the flag was raised,
remembering the sacrifice our soldiers have made.
Patriotic to the core, our Red, White, and Blue,
Americans be proud, stand , and salute.

Short Patriotic poem by Fritz Purdum| Details | |

Believe It

Believe Nothing
Believe Something
Believe Anything
Believe Everything
You are free to believe as you please
As long as that belief doesn't include killing me
If your fist threatens my nose
We will come to mighty blows
Live in peace
Or die in pieces
Don't tread on me
Let me be
Believe it

9-11 Remembered

The wound       (Haiku)  2014

A deep gaping hole
newly covered with scar flesh
a cemetery

the reflective pond
the bright thirteen year old trees
the lost souls still there

the money-men charge
fees to visit our worst time
Ah, America!

check out my blog for more Haiku and 9.11

Lewis And Clark

They were Meriwether Lewis and William Clark,
Her name was Sacagawea.
On an expedition they did embark
Finding the passage to the sea.

Down the Missouri they traveled, 
Then slithered 'round the Snake River bend.
Rocky Mountain weather and sickness battled;
At the Columbia River they'd end.

The Star-Spangled Glory

As the star-spangled glory,
Flies proud and grand,
With the home of the brave,
Though hill scattered lands,

With the star-spangled banner,
Gleaming o’er the shore
As the noble eagle
Stretches and soars

And the flag flies brilliant,
By mountains high,
As the crop fields spread,
Beneath won’drous blue skies.

Hiding a hint of melody
In the free-wheeling ramble
Of the piano’s opening phrases

It’s a pitter pat preview like
Kelly’s singing steps as he
Splashes through a street of rain

It’s a long drawn out unraveling
Of the tune on Ray Charles’ piano
Before he shouts out a bluesy version
Of our patriotic America the Beautiful

John F Kennedy

John F. Kennedy 1917-1963 The great 35th president of US It wasn't really a success He tried to stop the missile bases There were lot of angry faces When there was about to be a war Peace was what he asked for Texas was the place he was shot Later, the criminal was caught He didn't survive the pain His people cried like the rain

Short Patriotic poem by julie heckman| Details | |

To Fight Aloud is Very Brave

Thunderous gray smoke of war
No greater courage I've found
Those who war within their heart
An army fills the ground

When defeat has little honor
Those who died are never known
with dying eyes no one regards
a patriotic tone

We drown in plumed marches
and here the angels we seek
Line after line of walking dead
with uniforms of defeat

Emily Dickinson

A Roundel - United

It is a great joy to be united
Hearts held together without division
Full of grace and unlimited power
It is a great joy.

The reign of happiness void of tension 
The sight of great minds greatly excited
Ready to obey in all submission.

Winning victories clean and unscathed
A mighty formidable men of valor
Laying off enemies' ground sighted
It is a great joy.

Short Patriotic poem by Ken Duddle| Details | |

Armistice Day

The old soldier reflects
During a two minute lull.
Shiny medals worn
On clothes drab and dull.
Wearing a red poppy
With feelings of regret and pride.
Teardrops for comrades
Who died by his side.
Now begs for pennies
On the city streets
Looked down upon
By some that he meets.
Waiting for a pension
Promised years before.
One more statistic
A hero of war.

Short Patriotic poem by Rose Young| Details | |

The Year of September 11th

The Year of September 11th

The year of September 11th
The year my mother died
The year the World and I
Both sat down and cried

The World, for all its tragedy
Its rubble and debris
I, for the mom who late at night
Once rocked me on her knee

The World it lives life different now
It’s cautious and afraid
I just don’t know how to live,
And so instead I pray.

Sacred Duty

Here i stand a new man
Standing beside my brothers 
We are an unbreakable band
With our God we fight as one 
By believing in the trinity 
Our battle's already won
We take it upon ourselves
To walk in the ways of the Lord 
Keeping our souls from enternity's hell
With the stars and stripes in one hand 
And the word of God in th other 
It is my sacred duty 
And where i will always stand

Short Patriotic poem by Chukwuemeka Mbah| Details | |


 it's best done later and not now

tomorrow will be perfect i can vow

Why yoke yourself like a laden cow?


The cloud is heavy and ready to snow

Be merry with life and take it real slow

And in observing the cloud u didn't sow


Alas the seed dies with its great potential

buried with a would have been credential

The plan became an aborted mission

Because procrastination stole the vision

Barack Obama

I remain humbled and honored
proud and patriotic
to live in a time when my president
is recognized
for not only his intentions
but his deeds
as the Nobel Prize committee asks world leaders
to lend Barack Obama
their leadership and wisdom
in moving the world toward peace and negotiation.

 Thank you God Amen

Continued Blessings for this great man, who has only just begun.

Compatriots , where are you compatriots ?
On our a nation let’s pause a bit:
Money , money , money , money... 
Peace dying, children crying
All moving as if all is well
Take a look  at what nation has become :
Riots in south , terrorists in north ;
In the land of our births
Only God can say who is next
Thousand today, thousand tomorrow
Shame , what a shame !!!

Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue

Toby Keith, there is so much we owe you for your song “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue”. Your country band backed up your strong singing voice. The sound you produced became a nation’s choice. Since those twin towers in Manhattan were downed, the might of the USA was motivated by your sound. Every man, woman, and child felt patriotic once they heard your song that was terrific.
