    Default Freedom is not Free

    FREEDOM IS NOT FREE


    I watched the flag pass by one day.
    It fluttered in the breeze
    A young Marine saluted it, and then
    He stood at ease.

    I looked at him in uniform
    So young, so tall, so proud
    With hair cut square and eyes alert
    He'd stand out in any crowd.

    I thought, how many men like him
    Had fallen through the years?
    How many died on foreign soil?
    How many mothers' tears?

    How many Pilots' planes shot down?
    How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
    No, Freedom is not free.

    I heard the sound of taps one night,
    When everything was still.
    I listened to the bugler play
    And felt a sudden chill.

    I wondered just how many times
    That taps had meant "Amen"
    When a flag had draped a coffin
    of a brother or a friend.

    I thought of all the children,
    Of the mothers and the wives,
    Of fathers, sons and husbands
    With interrupted lives.

    I thought about a graveyard
    at the bottom of the sea
    Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
    No, Freedom isn't free!!
