Senryu 1

                                                       memorial day --
                                              soldiers stand at attention
                                                    a bugle plays Taps

    Thrilling topic for a poem! I was at a bootcamp a while ago and had my first experience with standing at attention. There is something about a lot of people doing the same thing and shouting "Yes sir!" in unison. I see you have captured some of that here.
