The sun
Goes down

On two rails
A pole
And one empty drum

We call it the Last Post but you only get one delivery these days

It is an oft forgotten ritual but "from the rising of the sun until the sinking of the same, we will remember you"

I have often stood and saluted that ritual and never had any regrets about it

Ritual helps....I can't understand why or how, but it does. Sometimes it's the only thing that can.

The sun---round full lighted--single
Goes down---down

On two rails-----double
A pole------------up
And one empty drum---round-empty and dark

sun vs drum.... light-dark  full-empty
sun vs rails.....single-double
down vs pole.....down-up
