I carry my poem on a t-shirt.
My art work is in the background
with the the poem superimposed on it.
The Poem;

The Price of Freedom

A ghostly image of a soldier
stood in the background,
as a mother with a babe in her
arms stood by a grave site.

She lowly whispered, “Father
this is your Son. Son this is your
Father. He gave his life so that
others might live.”
