Blue and White

blue and white, blue and white

strangers, huddled together

to pay their respects

something like this

has not happened

for many years

in America.

we make spectacles

of our fallen heros

placing them on pedestals

all gathered agree in silence

that this was an anomaly

as the procession passes

while the children shout thank you

and the old weep.
