    The poem is my favourite now. The poet has put across the travesty of claims made by the countries at war with one another. This can serve as a case against war. Thanks, Dear Poet.

    I agree with your thoughts. WW1 cost Australia 60,000 dead out of 400,000 enlisted. (Report) Reply

    Great stuff Stan, so true, we perpetuate war through its fanfare and celebration, to the flag waving, the grave marking, pomp and festoonery, the ones who never fight start wars and then hide in plain sight. (Report) Reply
