“Never forget” It’s structure set there’s something that I just don’t get When people told to take a sec The thousands lost Their lives just swept
And many more forever wept An empty hole with families wrecked Commemorate the date is set As if a giant hurdle leapt
Most people easily forget A numb that lulls themselves will let They patronize like I’m a pet Their pettiness to me will vex
It’s takes more than just bowing necks A promise for one day is kept Real charity Not on the net Read Facebook posts like “What the heck?”
My boiling blood want to snap necks A danger sign like floor is wet Not military or a vet But a salute those lost will get
Just for one day forget the rest On this day we will act our best Let bias and all hatred rest Each other love Hearts will be blessed
I took the original down just so it wouldn't take away from this draft. After taking a day and then coming back today to read the original through, I realized that the flow and sentiment of the poem was served better to rearrange some of the lines between the stanzas and/or moving some of the stanzas themselves.
