Pow/Mia Missing Man Ceremony
POW/MIA Missing Man Ceremony
There’s a table in the front
Raised so that it draws attention
Reserved for all those missing
Still not found or in detention.
Set for six of those missing
One each, for branches Serving
One place for lost Civilians
Whom, are felt just as deserving.
The table is shaped in the round
For the everlasting concern
As all of us, hope and pray
Someday they all, will return.
The tablecloth is bright white
To symbolize the purity
Of those, answering the call
Of their Country, doing their Duty.
I wrote this for the Honor Guard benefit at VFW Post 4641, in Dickson, TN. If you have a VFW in your town please forward this on to them. Honor Guards rarely get the thanks they deserve.
For Their Honor
You’ll see them standing proudly
In the summer’s heat or cold
Their heads bowed in silent prayer
