Battle

#Fowc #Battle

There’s always fighting somewhere….

Land, Places

Resources, Religion

All led by crackpot ideas and beliefs

Of course, the one’s leading the charge

Disappear off to the back of the crowd

While his (or her) men are fighting it out

Leaving them chance – to act all statesmanlike

at a memorial of stone

with names engraved – of those fallen

Long day

Early morning wake up call

Cereal and toast

Start of the day

To remember most

Memorials made

In churches and chapels

And then to museums

Remembering all those alike

Remembering those

Who one hundred years past

Fought for their country

First to the last
