A Living Legend


A Living Legend

 

He had old and blotchy skin

He had pale and milky eyes

He had bent broad shoulders

He had suspenders on his pants

 

He walked alone

He walked with a shuffle

He had hearing aids

He was old

 

He didn’t sing

He didn’t dance

He didn’t play sports

He didn’t star in movies

 

He fought with a rifle

He fought with the enemy

He fought to keep us safe

He fought to keep us free

 

I shook hands with a hero

I shook hands with a legend

I shook hands with a real man

I shook hands with a soldier.

Note: I passed a soldier who served during World War Two and Korea war today in Wal-Mart. It is in his and other service men and women to whom this is dedicated. Hoorah soldier.
