Her Dad remembered D-Day,

Helped mop up the scene, by the way…

At horrible cost

We saved what was lost,

A debt never repaid.

My Dad didn’t actually shoot,

Four-F, never put on boots…

But made ammunition

To fight imposition

Of repressive Hitler offshoots.

Our current leaders will bask

In glories of a valiant past…

No one need remind

They’re not the same kind

Of people who shouldered that task!

–Jonathan Caswell
