Black in about..
Seems the meaning be in doubt 
Smothered by the years...gone bye 
Passages of time.. deny

They...who knew..and suffered 
The few..who still remain...
They...who braved their lives for us 
They saw the scarlet stain

They understand...this flower...
Know what lays behind 
Had a friend or brothers..gone 
Forever...entombed in time 

Black in center ...Red about 
Mud and blood and red about 
Unmarked graves hold men... unsung
Lives...the cost of what was won

Lest we forget
