Battles waged on foreign shore Brave soldier tis no more Young adventuresome lad Relinquished valor all he had Engraved script, chiseled track Humble words on ebon plaque “Here he lay, this noble knave Honorable tis life he gave” Danced on edge of sword Freedom an ultimate reward Somber elegy, tethered to stone Countryman’s name unknown Tattered flag proudly wave Lofty wafts upon a grave Glorify red, white and blue Call of duty heroes ensue 3/21/2022
