Contributor: Nancy L. Meek || Poem Categories

For a Thankless Jobcountry as flag
God bless our brave soldiers
wherever they are
be it home, on leave
or serving in fields afar.

Mere thank-you's do lack
the true gratitude we feel
unable to fully convey
what our hearts don't reveal.

But how do you thank those
who put their lives on the line
in seemingly endless,
and often deadly rhyme?

Sure, you can pump their palms
give them bear hugs, too,
but are these enough to show
how much they mean to you?

Pray tell, where would we be
if they should ignore the call
by this nation under God
with liberty and justice for all?

You can search the world over
but will find merely a few
willing to risk their lives
for what our forefathers knew.

Some kings are just clueless
on the right path to choose
thus more reason than not
to challenge their views.

With one eye toward Heaven
the other on a bush somewhere
soldiers get stuck in the middle
on this board of life unfair.

So, dig deep into your hearts,
thank them for doing your job
for there go both you and I
except for the grace of God.
