War


Our nations soldiers are dying
The families can't stop crying
There is only one small comfort left,
Its the British flag still boldly flying

I'm tired of this war
It causes so much pain
I support our soldiers
but this is driving me insame

Have I lost sight of the goal
Or am I just confused
I'm tired of politicians fighting
Leaving war supporters hurt and abused.

Why can't we all get along?
We're trying to do what is right
We are supposed to be united
So why must our leaders fight?

Our nations soldiers are dying
The families can't stop crying
There is only one small comfort left,
Its the British flag still boldly flying

When can our heroes come home
Although they will stay if they must
But they are ready to see their families
Holding back their tears. It is so unjust.

Fittin in at home will be hard
That they understand
But the Middle East grows old quickly
Anything's better then this wretched land

There in the sand is a stain of blood
He was soon to be an 'old man'
His wife will find out any day
His baby boy will never understand

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
