MORE IMPORTANT THINGS

Charles J. Ingerson: More Important Things

Passing on of friends known
and patriots often unknown
brothers and sisters in arms
sent by politicians into danger
in blank stares of a stranger
eluding illusions of charms
into monsters evil grown
without empathy shown;

My sisters and brothers gone
you’re remembered each day
while imposters pass laws
claiming your valor theirs
invoking correct slurs
extending evil their claws
but for you now we pray
facing freedom’s dawn!
