Till - Poem by Tom Allport

Our eyes are wide open
But they cannot see
Mankind, s inhuman calamity
Like children we follow
And believe it right
To raise our flag
And do battle and fight
We follow like children
The words of a few
With no thought of consequence
Because it is a just true?
And we cannot lose
With him on our side
And the winning, s.. the prize
Of a home with a garden
And food on the table
And a job which is stable
And a peaceful time
The next time
