NOVEMBER

Each November we are reminded, watching poppies fall...

Each represents a life surrendered answering duty's call.

And later, in the weeks that follow, when snowflakes fill the sky,

The mind is filled with thoughts of those whose lives had soon passed by.

Each fleeting flake a forfeited future deprived of its true worth -

And like the poppies - sent to fall and fade back in the earth.

Indeed MC. We have a debt to them we can never repay.

Thanks, Harry. I wonder if the future generations
of citizens of that benighted blood-soaked land
will really appreciate and understand the young
lives from a land far away that were sacrificed there in the cause of enlightenment against the
ignorant armies of the night that still emerge
like foul water from the desert sands.

Very appropriate M.C.


(I was shocked to see the photos of all those young lads killed in Afghanistan,not one of them over nineteen)
