Musings on life, the universe and an elephant named Flobo



A poignant poem dedicated to those who have served.

Parade of the Fallen

Slaughtered lambs
Littered lands
The children of the poor
Like cannon fire,
We admire
The heroes that came before.
Battle worn
We see the dawn
Another year has passed.
Ranks unknown
Medals shown
Our bravery is set to task
To mourn our friends
A bitter end
Their memory not betrayed.
Solemn, silent
The bugle plays
Echoes across the day
Wreaths lay bare
Tears are shared
For comrades
Lost to time…
A prayer is read
We bow our heads
To remember forever more
The men who walked so proudly
And answered the call to war…
