Where are all the happy memories?
We seem compelled to remember
Tragic anniversaries.

Here was war, and there a battle fought.
Over things we didn't understand
Fights that came to nought.

That was terror, where many people died.
This was the enacted retribution
For things we can't abide.

But what of joy and song and laughter?
And why are these forgotten
For now and ever after?
