Another Decoration Day, for our honored dead.
And again, we hear the martial tread.
Again we see our young men called to fight
The same vandals, who’d rule by might.
Again, they have challenged the rights of free men
To work and live decently with wives and children.
May our Armies strike them with tank and plane
‘Till never they’ll seek to wreck civilization again.
