A poem in remembrance of all those who have perished because of terrorism and war.

To those who have returned
Here are your white wings
Your harps and your robes
In exchange for earth things.

Report to the dorms
To the right of those clouds.
There's stables out back
And sure, pets are allowed.

I know some of you
Left your loved ones back there.
They'll be with you soon
Watch the view screen right there.

Please press the blue button
To send them some peace.
We've been trying for years
For a world love increase.

But you see we've been busy
Proccessing the new
Residents here upstairs
Yes ones just like you.

Why just today we got
A few hundred souls.
The press from the crowd
Bent the pearly gates' poles.

So while you're arranging
Your things on the shelves
We hope that the living
Will make peace themselves.

It's not that we don't
Enjoy your company.
It's the youth section's is full
And we've lonely elderly.

If something isn't done
To balance it out
The boss just might strike
That world with a drought.

Or the elders of whom
Too many have forgot
May abandon the forests
And leave them to rot.

Please pray that your loved ones
Remaining below
Take care of each other
And act like they know

That blood calls for blood
That even warriors have mothers
That they put down their weapons
And love one another.

A worthy tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the War in Iraq. But we should also thank those who served in Iraq and those military members who are still serving -- and some who are still dying -- in Iraq every day. Something to think about especially on the anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Thanks for celebrating all our heroes with your poem.
