WHERE WERE YOU?

Charles J. Ingerson: Where Were You?

Then or now found today
were you in yesterday hid
or playing in the tomorrows
a child or an adult to know
forgetting having never been
learning only the junk tales
finding and feeding on drugs
seeking entitlements pelf
or standing tall and proud
hand on your chest to honor
saluting in a privilege earned
watching a flag pass by
remembering the infamy
so long ago repeated today?
