I GET TO SAY, "YOU'RE WELCOME"

By Michael Thmnas, Army

Writing Type: Poem

On Veterans Day
the little kids dress up, cauy flags
and wave to me and say, "Thank You.''
On Veterans Day
old men and women smile
and wave to me and say, "Thank You."
On Veterans Day
rich people come out of their big homes,
get out of their nice cars
and shake my hand and say, "Thank You."
On Veterans Day
all kinds of people line the streets,
cheer and shout, ""Thank You."
On Veterans Day
I get to say, "You're welcome."
