(Prologue:

Born with one thought
being all and doing all
preserving our freedoms
amid the narrowness
found where to go oft
never to be found aloft
always in awareness
fighting with all demons
understanding our call
brothers grown and taught!)

Duty Must Be Done

“Yes, our duty must be done,
in the rain, the night or sun.
Weapons ready and defensive,
not evil or offensive.
We walk out road, as duty calls.
No other choice outside the walls.
Must defend our family and our homes,
outside the wall evil roams,”

Yes, Our Duty!

Reaching into the past’s future
seeing now the whole picture
seeing from the absent rabble
into the present day babble
understanding the entitled all
welfare and indolent to recall
sitting sideways on the fence
minds in neutral and dense
while soldiers and patriots all
understand freedom’s call
never shirking or to dabble
across ice filled rivers to paddle
‘yes, our duty! to now suture
amid the media’s stricture!

(Epilogue:

When we meet and talk
feeling the warmth of love
knowingly to understand
each doing what’s best
sharing, giving and caring
our duty thus declaring
having taken the test
obeyed every command
brother’s to Father above
in this eternal/mortal walk!)
