On Armistice Day
‘Here in this graveyard it’s still No Man’s Land
The countless white crosses stand mute innocent.
And through man’s blind indifference to his fellow man.
To a whole generation who were butchered and damned!‘
‘You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you’ll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.’
Seventeen million died in World War One – died for nothing.
Never forget – and never forgive!
