D day

For those who went in
Blind and wet
Bravely into
Machine gun jaws 

Innocent blood in the water
Serving nothing
But wars carrion appetite,
Boys against boys
On officers orders.

For those who never celebrated 
The fall of Hitler,
Who never would know
Their painful death
Was not in vain. 

Being sent to the shores of death
Never making it to the sand
A shield for those sons
Who would return home again.

This is a thank you
You can never read,
Never understand what it means
To millions like me
Whom your sacrifice saved.
