Hero - Poem by Siegfried Sassoon

'Jack fell as he'd have wished,' the Mother said,
And folded up the letter that she'd read.
'The Colonel writes so nicely.' Something broke
In the tired voice that quavered to a choke.
She half looked up. 'We mothers are so proud
Of our dead soldiers.' Then her face was bowed.

Quietly the Brother Officer went out.
He'd told the poor old dear some gallant lies
That she would nourish all her days, no doubt.
For while he coughed and mumbled, her weak eyes
Had shone with gentle triumph, brimmed with joy,
Because he'd been so brave, her glorious boy.

He thought how 'Jack', cold-footed, useless swine,
Had panicked down the trench that night the mine
Went up at Wicked Corner; how he'd tried
To get sent home, and how, at last, he died,
Blown to small bits. And no one seemed to care
Except that lonely woman with white hair.

    How dare you connote that this speaker “THE PIG POET” was intending the word he wrote to mean the correct conjugation of the present participle form of this Estonian word “ReetSartreet”, “Azerbaijani Radioasktiv Skrattadministrativslav #54”? ! This example of ignorance is particularly bathetic. Removal of your Icelandic keyboard may be necessary for you to learn how to treat members of the public who are not fluent in Estonian in a polite manner. I am disappointed in you.

    I disagree. “RËÈÊĒĖĘEEEEEÉEEEEEEEEÈEEEEEEĖEEEEEÊEEEEEEĒEEEĘ” is the correct conjugation of the present participle form of this Estonian verb “ReetSartreet.
