Japan Surrenders

Ode To The Past


In WWII, we had spam,

Very seldom ham.

Drank water from lister bags,

And, at times, beer from kegs!



Some flew planes

Through winds and rains,

To the place of Rising Sun

But in '45, our work was done!



After the war, truth be known,

We "high tailed" it home,

To forget the past,

From first to last!



Yet some memories

Do not quickly fade,

Like the slow-moving sun

Creating lots of shade.



Would you do it again.

And give your youth,

To establish Freedom

In anchoring Truth?



Time has gone

Swiftly by,

When B-29's

Covered the sky.



But we won

The second World War,

When time changed us

To man from boy!


Haul up the anchor;

Raise the Flag;

Say good-bye to the past,

Creating no drag!
