Double acrostic poem honoring The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and those who guard it.
SOLDIER



Soldiers stand in the rain, one coughs.
Older soldiers know there’s no bravado.
Lightning strikes, their mission crucial.
Defending a tomb honoring those departed.
Ignoring discomfort, guarding the alumni.
Every season a challenge.
Remaining true to the unknown soldier.
