front-line soldiers

soldiers.
pick up your rifles,
your gowns,
your masks,
your shoes.

march in time with the melody,
a changing melody
the melody of history.

Tend to the bloodied,
the broken, the bruised,
the sick.

Smiles for today,
tomorrow,
and all the tiring days past.

Wear yellow for the sun,
for a smile,
even when your heart is blue.

Fight against bigotry,
racism,
unjust killings.

Let your voices be heard,
let it sweep throughout
the melody of time.

soldiers.
pick up your rifles,
your gowns,
your masks,
your shoes.

we thank you.
