It was V day yesterday,

he came to the fountains in the center of town,

decorated in an assortment of medals,

his skin is now wrinkled,

but his uniform immaculate,

he waves from his wheelchair,

as youth struggle to understand what is happening,

they announce his triumph,

that he fought back in the day,

it was time to go, and I said,

‘Thank you for your service, without you, we’d all be dead.’
