What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Memorial Day 2011

And once your done going to the mattress and white sales,
Have set off your fireworks (yes, they're selling fireworks and party supplies),
Watched your prerequisite number of war movies,
Lit the bar-b-que in a burnt offering to the gods of summer,
Go walk the graves of the quick and the dead,
And be thankful you've not had to be either.
