Remembrance Day  -11th November 2004

I sat there in silence
as the 11th hour chimed
just a little tribute
BBC timed
then for those few who'd bothered
the world set off again
not a fitting tribute
for those lost women and men
I did not wear a poppy
I never ever do
that does not mean my thoughts
are any less sincere or true
there should be no need of charity
for the survivors their children or wives
they should be paid in diamonds
still not enough for lost and broken lives
