Not Just on the Day

For tomorrow
this 70th anniversary
of D-Day

you don't have
to be pro-war

or think America
has been blameless
in every global 
(or domestic) conflict

to respect
and listen to
the soldiers
who gave their lives

and yes they still gave

even if they were
lucky enough

to come
back home to us.
