Memorial Day by Valeri Beers

Memorial Day
by Valeri Beers

All gave some
Some gave all
Just take a moment & remember
When you’re having a ball

For the price they
were willing to pay
you don’t have to
go to work or school today

I don’t want to be
a downer at your barbecue
or make you feel guilty about your
long weekend plan
Just take a moment & remember
why you can

poetry prompt: death and taxes  

———————————————————————

Poet and writer Dorothy Parker has a collection of poems titled “Death and Taxes” One of my favorite poems from that collection is “Summary”:

Summary
by Dorothy Parker

Every love’s the love before
In a duller dress.
That’s the measure of my lore-
Here’s my bitterness:
Would I knew a little more,
Or very much less

This is a GREAT movie about Dorothy Parker (it’s actually just a short trailer):
