The White Cockade
by J. Merrell
It’s hard to know,
just who you can trust,
surrounded by the white cockade
proudly worn in solidarity,
yet no loyalty in sight,
emblem of my family
and symbol of my duty displayed,
will anything I do matter
to the man I call father?
Fighting for a cause not my own
in a country with no real ties
holding me to its breast,
and in the end I don’t know
which way to turn
or what is right anymore
in the blinding blaze of battles lost.
