“The war to end all wars” they said
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.
And were naively believed
By those who now are honorably dead
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.
