We See Images They Remember Vietnam

We read about it

In the history books

See long ago images

Playing on the T.V. Screen

But father, and grandfathers

Uncles and Brothers

Aunts, Sisters and Mothers

Watch the television screen

And memories

Of Vietnam flood their mind

Memories of watching childred die

Walking in the midst of enemy fire,

Seeing old men and women die

Poisoned by gases

Holding hands as buddies

As they breathed their last.

We see long ago images on a t.v screen

They see memories.
