Ode to the World War II Memorial

Dr Abe V Rotor
World War II memorial at St Paul University QC

Take me to the hallowed ground of war victims and victors
From early man to biblical times to Afghanistan

In the caves of Lascaux and in the arena of the gladiators,
To Alexander's campaign to Napoleon's last stand.

Take me to Auschwitz camp to Iwo Jima and to Bataan
To Flanders Field where crosses lie row by row
That I may know Halloween's meaning to God and man
Away from fears of the unknown as I grow. ~
