Watch Your Step - Poem by Pasquale DiMeola

Never let them have you bow
Nor take you for a ride
Retain all swollen pride
Conceit your mind to not kowtow
Reset your clock for here and now
To none you will abide
Bugles for all who died
In fields whose stench turned stomachs foul.
When memories begin to fade
As silent bombs defuse
Tattered flags are attic laid
For vermins to abuse
Those generations made the grade
God help you if you lose.
