Lest We Forget

They don’t forget do they?

They never did; their priorities

were all different back then.

Now the tide is changing,

as it does: shifting sands.

And this time round there

will be all the parades

you can stomach for the

time you’re out there in

the sun. Enjoy it for

what little they’re giving

in return for everything you

and the boys have done.

We know. We just miss

them so. And yet we’re

proud that we’re not

forgotten; that is much

worse than losing life and

limb in service of others.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
