Respectfully

Published November 22, 2013 by Libby

service
then and
now, in war
rarely in peacetime, brave
protectors

protectors
of choices
the ability to
make, break and shake
laws

strong
brave, true
just, and willing
to spill blood for
freedom

laws
attempting to
guide singular vision
to global expanding populations
people

people
some strong
some weak – still
need protecting from tyrants –
service!

JulesPaige submitted this ‘Elfje Quint’ on Veteran’s Day (UK Armistice Day) 11th November but I had already posted an Elfje for that day so a little late, but still in our memories, I offer it here. The Elfje series first appeared on one of Jules’ blogs. The six pieces were to prompts and are all about one photograph. Follow the link to see the original post. http://juleslongerstrandsofgems.wordpress.com/2013/10/25/addition-miz-q-the-final-of-6-of-a-series-of-newsy-prompts/
