Silver Thoughts - Poem by John Shea

Lest we forget the forgotten
life is dirty and dark and rotten
For some but not all forsaken
Quivering in the mud
And tasting the blood of death
Giving life fresh new breath
We salivate at the plate of life so fine
Elevate your mind
Only to find or placate the reason
My ancestors are worthy of lust
Like the cancer sores
On a whore we did trust
Blood let through the years bygone fears
Naught the gold to desire or a funeral pyre
Silver thoughts are the fire
Killer of blood letters
The legend of the settlers
Who carved this great nation
Amen.
