Armistice Day has its origins in universal loathing of the carnage of World War I (1914 ~ 1918). Solemnly, it was declared that peaceful resolution would in future be the guarantor of peace between nations.
Since Armistice, the political elite have re-labelled our press-ganged youth as willing martyrs. Armistice Day acts as a recruiting sergeant for future wars whilst cenotaphs are turned into recruitment posters.
The total number of war dead during the 20th Century stands at 187 million martyrs. The Imperial War Museum suggests the true figure is much higher. These were my thoughts when last night I penned a true tribute to all the fallen.
THE POPPIES FLOWER BEST
For us they’re neither German,
Not British, Russian, French,
We found them with the poppies,
That were scattered in the trench,
Not for us their nation,
The whereupon the whys,
We only saw the children,
Weep tears from lifeless eyes.
They fought for better future,
And died that we should live,
But since their souls departed,
They have nothing left to give;
The poppies are reminders,
They’re medals for our breast,
Each poppy to remember,
We’re too the passing guest.
The spirit world has claimed them,
Their nations left behind,
Illusions of the living,
Are burdens for the blind?
I am the pasture’s blossom,
That sleeps upon your breast,
I wait for you, for whom I fought,
Till then I gentle rest.
