SINCE MY OLDER BROTHERS FOUGHT
by Mac McAnear
Member Div. 4, San Diego

George Washington Liberty Bell Spirit of 1776
Since my older brothers fought
I can march without a gun
Or the fear of bullets over head!

Now dream as young men ought
Having lots and lots of fun
Doing peace-time things I love instead!

A mystery we cannot settle
Why born at such a time
Determines whether waging war or peace!

Not a matter of our mettle
Or a talent-gift of rhyme
Certainly not a question that will cease!

Flag Raising on Iwo Jima
