Thinking

There’s a wall in the special exhibition of IWM North called lest we forget, asking peoples opinions of how we should remember the lost of two world wars – i’ve summed it up in this acrostic

The wall spoke clearly

having delivered its verdict

it was clear to those asked – the idea of

not remembering two world wars was a bad one

keep on remembering – silently whispered the opaque squares

it’s what we promised those who fell

note the date – and commemorate the lost of the

great war and the one that took place soon after
