VETERANS DAY HAIKUS
By David Allen

1.

I’m a veteran
Much thanks for the holiday
But, please, no more wars

2.

It  is quiet now
All along the western front
War wages elsewhere

3.

Ah, this was the war
You promised would “end all wars”
How did that work out?

4.

Veterans have earned
The honors received this day
Not those who sent them to die

5.

We veterans thank you
For all your handshakes and hugs
Now, fund our health care
