The 4th

As we scream and wave flags
As we salute caskets and the dead
As we cry for the crippled and the maimed
Let’s take a closer look
at each broken warrior
that we walk by
huddled under bridges
holding cardboard signs
chased by invisible demons
will our patriotic words feed them?
Do we see them?
