"Plastic Memorial"

Plastic flowers
strewn across cold ground
where the dead can not feel
and we care so little
that the Nation creates a day that forces us to remember
shed a tear
once a year
then your conscience
will be clear
the dead don't remember
or care
about your plastic memorial
your fake offerings
a wreath bought with hollow intent
at discount prices
the dead don't remember
the spirit
standing behind you
it remembers
watching your false display
until next year.
