For Charlie

The 25th of April this year marks the 25th Anniversary of the start of world war one. This poem is a tribute to those who suffered and fight in all such conflicts.


Bullets fly, people die,
War has come your way
Pick a side, allegiance abide
Will you live or die today?


Anxious partners, fretful Mums,
And every son and daughter
Pray for peace , but hear the guns
As combatants engage in slaughter  

Crowds protest, battle infests,
Continuum wished the least
Eternal rests, Reaper guests,
The reward for those deceased.


Blood is spilled, surrender willed,
Chaos merged with fear
Soldiers killed, Graveyards filled
With those you love so dear
