For MSGT Kenneth E Maddux, Ret, my father

Mad Dog Maddux
I earned my rest
Out to Eat
My Flag
My Fathers Flags
The Marine

World War II
Korean war
Vietnam War
Many stories
Some antedotes
Many stories
Left untold
Astound me now
This my father
Never told, but
Marine to Marine
Difference made
Marine to Marine
Knowledge passed
Marine to Marine
Know the past
Marine to Marine
Will always last
Marine to Marine
Know the task
Marine to Marine
Eye to eye
Unspoken bond.



My Flag

Who has died for my flag?
Who has sighed after those who died
for my flag?
Who has pride for my flag?
Who has tried with all their pride
to not sigh after those who died
for my flag?
Who has cried for my flag?
Who has cried when they eyed
my flag?
Who holds my pride
as they stride for my flag
with eyes wide?
Who carries my flag
for all those who did not die
for all those who kept them alive
are here in my flag?
