 ramblings and things

Armistice Day, 2020

Seventy five years have passed
Since the world had release
From that last Great War
And entered uneasy peace.
We may not parade this year, we
Locked down until December,
But that in no way means
We will fail to remember
Those who made the sacrifice
Fighting for the cause,
Those lost and disabled in
Those Two Great Wars.

For all of those passing years,
At a largely unrecognised cost
There has been an uneasy peace
With many lives still ruined or lost
This year I shall observe the silence
In remembrance all of those gone
And spare a though for the safety
Of all those still bravely serving on.
They shall not be forgotten for,
Although we may remember alone,
In the strength of common thought we
Will not be remembering on our own.
