Today (well tomorrow) is ANZAC Day in Australia. It is basically an Australian memorial day. I wrote this quickly, so it is a first draft still. This is what I think of when I think of ANZAC day.
Lest we forget
A single red poppy lying on a grave
Underneath the names of a man who
Saved the lives of other men.
Thousands of names on a sliver monument
Remembering those wounded or dead.
A half-mast flag all day
Lingering trumpet sounds.
Inside proud Australians rise to the occasion
All remembering those who sacrificed themselves.
Lest we forget.
