11/11   11:00  Memorial

The little white wooden church

 

The small white wooden church, had not an empty seat.

With an overflowing congregation, so many on their feet.

Spilling out of the door, to pay their last respects.

Far more than I had thought, and more than most expect.

 

The service was quite poignant, a fitting tribute that’s for sure

A lost and fallen comrade, this memorial was for.

We bowed our heads in prayer, and silently we stood

United in our grief, as a band of brothers surely would.

 

After the service, I marched across the parade square

Back towards MT, by a familiar sight, stood, upright, there.

A stark remnant of the Berlin Wall, perched like a sentry, standing tall.

A small section that was removed, torn down, smashed in a fall.

 

Ending endless suffering, tyranny, and scorn.

Globally it seemed, a time of peace had been born.

Whilst standing in its shadow, an unseen presence drawing near

That of a true and gallant hero, who many held so dear.

 

What was his death for, it seemed so futile, and in vain

Lost in a war, that truly was insane.

Based on Blair’s dodgy dossier, fictious, full of lies.

The cause of many thousand deaths, and the reason today we cried.

So sad that so many young lives are destroyed. War has no winners.
