Phillip Coffey: Thinking of Veterans
The beating heart of the bleeding, wounded soldier went suddenly silent - One of many.
The unseen wind driven church bells of his hometown church began softly ringing.
The stories - calloused, old of fallen men in battles, won and lost, soon began waning.
Days after, Hymns are sung, some saluting - shooting blanks into the air - No explaining.
Lowered into the Silt and Clay, tears are shed by Motherhood and widowed young- No complaining.
The gathered, chattered crowd disperses long after the eternal soul has departed.
Flags lowered to half-staff, people driving by with carefree glimpse - talking, texting.
Young people recruited, marching to a familiar rhythm - all patriotic, one and all - Flags are waving.
