Children in the war

A child is stuck in the war

Her screams are unheard in her throat

Her mother is bleeding

In the ruins of the kitchen

Another child is running

To the ocean in her dream

The bullets do not seem

To be deaf to the bombs

Falling from the ch...

Check the mag.

Fucking hands

Shake

And sweat

Ah' Chris mate. 8th June 1982. Falklands One

 

Ah’ Chris mate,

What a fate,

We’d laughed 

and cavorted

Before the fun.

I’d had sex

In Pompey

And lots of rum.

 

It’d take a lot
