New Poem, Yay

The boys are off to play today

All bright and shiny

Crew cuts and ideal both razor sharp

Laughing, joking, pushing and jostling

Just like boys under blue skies.

“Oh the games that we shall play”

Hide and seek, duck and cover

Scream and fall with smoking holes through

By brave, our boys, be brave

Play this game to the bitter end.

Now it’s time to lay thee down boys

Broken soldier toys

All youth and power spent

Rest now on the burnt and bloody grass

Clear eyes now dark

All the pretty boys staring up forever and ever

At the perfect blue skies.
