I remember

Hillmorton Remembrance Day

I remember
they spoke of past glories
and comrades who failed to return.
I remember
the moments of madness
which medals and ribbons would earn.
I remember
the sad wistful stories
that pomp and flags could not hide.
Let's remember
in the November sunshine as
chill winds run up the spine.
That the dignity of the old soldier
should not hide the greater crime.
That until all war is ended
there can never be peace in our time.
