She died in a

Care home before the

Pandemic, from

Complications after a broken hip.

She helped see off Hitler but

If granny had lived

Would she have

Seen off the virus?

During the War she worked in munitions

Her factory got bombed, she

Made ammunition for the boys at the


In the care home both her

War-time comrades

Choked to death for want of testing and PPE.

She would have been up in arms watching

Brave chums denied oxygen

She'd have said:

A bullet would be a mercy.

Just like May 1940 when the roof fell in,

Granny had a narrow escape

Wonderful poem.
Tragic how that brave generation has been so let down.
