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.
