The Wreaths of Army/Navy

T. T. Robinson's photo.

Side by side we lay their wreaths
Where side by side they lay,
Brothers in arms, they rest eternal
Oh, but not today!

Today they’re storming the heavens
Each taking their side
They raise their colors
Sing their song
And cheer for their team with pride.

Today it’s Army/Navy!
The day of the year that shows
Brothers united
Become brothers divided
Until the final whistle blows.

But long after the touchdowns
Beyond the final score
From the football field
To the battlefield
They’ll be brothers ever more.
