The Ghost's of Patriots........

Thank you , men and women.....

Just an iron clad ghost rattles away on
horseback ......his shoulders creaking
His chain mail rusting
He knows only one cause
To ride
for the king

His armor dented .... tarnished
and missing the shine
that once awed the kingdoms
of fools
And kings too.....winners that
take all

He knows but one thing and one
thing alone
devotion
And that too
close to
being stolen

Though ride again he will
for the queen
for the gold
for the promise
or for no reason
at all

But the betrayal of
this patriot the worse
betrayal of all
And now what
as he lays his armor down
and cries as
the grand babies are
laid in his
arms

Will you too forget
him?
or her ? Just like the
kings
the queen
the ghosts
and the grandbabies

We tip our hats to the patriots , we hubbers , and we know a few don't we! Among us are those who serve or served and for that ............We are forever greatful!
Thank You !............

What a wonderful poem for the Patriots. We should all do well to remember the patriots of our own countries no matter where we are from.

I read this poem as a poem about the revolutionaries and it made me sad to think what they would think of us. Was it worth their blood to form a nation that worships the dollar above all things? Sorry, I am feeling pretty sad about the state of the Nation theae days! As a serf, I watch my power diminish- wait, maybe that is simply old age setting in, lol!
