"And when I'm gone, just carry on, don't mourn
Rejoice every time you hear the sound of my voice
Just know that I'm looking down on you smiling
And I didn't feel a thing, So baby don't feel my pain
Just smile back"-Eminem


They gave it, their all for us
So we can still say this and thus
About what we deserve
But we didn’t serve
Like when they fought and died for us


The author's comments:
With Veterans day approaching, I decided I should submit this one. Not that good, I think, but at least it is something for the vet who are alive- unlike my grandfather. Hopefully it will get accepted in time.

Thanks.  This is the best Limerick I ever wrote, so it's the only one I got published.  I'm not really good at long stuff.

I just realized,  you should have written something like this for today, December 7th, 1941, Remember Pearl Harbor, "A date which will live in infamy" ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
