WW1 reflections

White crosses grew and grew across so many fields

marking immense losses that great world war wields.

The war to end all wars they said, merely a first course

of course, on a menu unpalatably impossible to digest;

an inexhaustible appetite destined never to be glutted.

War graves more accrue, each one by another abutted.

Having some influence on your poetic muse, am I? I certainly hope so. This is something we should never forget!


Cheers, Bren

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

Agree with Bren: reflects a point of interest that has been moving through the site over the last couple of years, with an increasing focus on that Great War. "Till the future dares forget the past" - I'm afraid we're rather good at that. Another creative response, with a bitter rhyme pair to conclude.


Appreciated, Frank.
