Taps

We hear it at military furnerals,

Its heard daily on base,

Written by a commanding officer,

Southern after a terrific tragic engagement,

Fallen strewn across a field,

Various stages of dying,

Can you see it!

Can you smell the cannon smoke,

Air enveloping all smells,

All boys crying crying out Momma,

The high ranking office,

A musician before the war,

Wrote Taps to honor all ,

Falling,

Both sides,

Americans

One and All!

John Wayne read a poem once,

Thats how I went from not wondering about Taps,

Then overly prouder of my American history.
