So Much

Never was so much owed by so many to so few.
It's probably too late, but I thank you for what you've done for us.
I'm thinking how can I repay the debt. Why did you give your life for me?
What made you fly into danger, for what values did you die for?
Liberty? Democracy? Heroism? Call of Duty?
When you took off, what future you hoped will be when you landed?
I think I got it. But do we have to always battle?
Ha! automated democracy! what an oxymoron.
