End of the Day

Updated on November 8, 2017


The end of the day,

Taps are playing a sad song.

Marking of repentance,

Tragedy of days so long.


Much late to forgive,

This travesty by a few.

Where is due justice,

As the times have run askew?


Where is reveille,

"First Call", time to rise and shine?

Starting a new day,

When all's lives are on the line?


Blow the bugle's charge,

As mere trumpets can't compare.

Reach for atonement,

There's so little time to spare.

      This piece has the underpinnings of a call to action statement - I found myself wondering "who would answer the call, when lives were on the line." Perhaps in the mindset of someone standing outside the walls of Jericho?
