FC: Patriotic Poems By Joey Whitfield
1: Today Is Your Lucky Day Bruce Lansky Today on your birthday consider your luck. You could have been born as a pig, cow, or duck. You could have been born crying oink, quack, or moo. You're lucky you didn't wind up in the zoo. | My connection with this poem.I like this poem because it has humor in it and easy to read.It is short and down to the point. I like how it sounds to myslef when i read it aloud or in my thoughts.It simply is entertaining to read.
2: Veterans Poem By Joanna Fuchs Some of them were drafted; Some were volunteers; For some it was just yesterday; For some it’s been many years; In the jungle or the desert, On land or on the sea, They did whatever was assigned To produce a victory. Some came back; some didn’t. They defended us everywhere. Some saw combat; some rode a desk; All of them did their share. No matter what the duty, For low pay and little glory, These soldiers gave up normal lives, For duties mundane and gory. Let every veteran be honored; Don’t let politics get in the way. Without them, freedom would have died; What they did, we can’t repay. We owe so much to them, Who kept us safe from terror, So when we see a uniform, Let’s say "thank you" to every wearer. | USMC | My connection with this poem. My connection is the ability to understand the fight and selflessness soldiers have overcame for our country. It is almost the ultimate sacrifice for the people of the united states and all who are protected under our military core.
3: COLLIN When I watch you it's like you're my brother. I see the similarities between us and how much we have in common. Or When I watch you and hang out with you it's always chill and laid back. When I watch you I see a lot more then just a person. I say whem I watch you I think that I can trust you with anything and can always talk to, to have my back when I need it the most. I stand up For you as a brother. I stand up | Joey Whitfield | Collin WInters
4: Invisible Soldier You can tell her by the twinkle in her eye, at the parade when the flag marches by. She served our country and served it very well. Some have even served a tour or two in hell. She suffered hardship and ceased to care. It gave us strength just to know that she was there. She was a leader you could tell by the rank she wore. But she beacme the invisible soldier after the war. She can march, she can fly, she can sail. She proved that bravery isn't exclusive of the male. She did every job she was asked and more, but she became the invisible soldier after the war. Now it is finally time to right a wrong. Honor our sister soldier; hear her song. It's very clear she is a patriot to the core. Don't let her be the invisible soldier anymore. 1995: Sarge Lintecum | My connection with this poem. I liked this poem because truly most American women don't get the credit they should in any military force. Also this poem shows that women are equal to men in the military and I like that.
5: Football: By Joey Whitfield Football is great football is fun, especially when you play under the sun. football is tough and gridy; but none of us expects any pitty. Football is the sport I play; for if there was no football everyone would have a boring day. | This is a poem that I clearly thought of in my spare time.
