9781483944395: Pacific Crimson - Forget Me Not

Pacific Crimson - Forget Me Not is a tribute in verse to the men and women who fought War II in the Pacific. The world owes more than it could ever muster to these defenders of freedom during humankind’s deepest, darkest and dire hours - a century rivaling the bleakest days in human history. Still, when the lights went out, the lamps came on. It was the everyday citizen, who suffered, but it was the everyday citizen who lifted the lamps and gave their sweat and lives to assure the world would be free of the more bestial end of tyranny’s spectrum. These verses seek to capture the inner heart of the individuals, who put themselves on the line. Each poem is specific to a place and date and . . . vernacularly correct. I have spared my readers the hypocrisy of flowery verses in this chapbook. If this offends, I’ll not apologize, because to do so would insult the memory of those who fell on those islands and to those who fall daily as their time runs out in service to humankind. Fear no more the mortar’s blare, See no more the star shell’s flare - Rest beneath your comrade’s prayer And let the ash become the dust, Because the battle’s ceased And for you, the war is over.
