Cows Eyes…..They looked Like.

His eyes bulged, He looked down at the pain. I pulled with all my being! Then lunged, and bayoneted him again. No word we spake. No utterance he cried. I stuck em once , I stuck em twice ..... And then he died .

We Salute You

Tis pen to paper time And glass to lips. Clouded memories And heart felt sighs. When time stops still again, The barriers of age Crumble, Tis the summer of 82 Everyman an Emperor! And before God On bended knee, Still our ranks swell.

25 Years Ago:The Class of 82

We valiant few Once again Have come to haunt you To rake your dreams And inflict the pain That we no longer feel For on this day All those years ago We died, while you still live.

Did You Happen To See

There's another notice on the board today. Passing of an unsung hero, Just one more, insignificant man. No flowers,no tears, Just the passing of years, When men now younger than we, Had fought and died, for liberty. Though,we now older, and yet no less boldly. Stand man to man, shoulder…

I care not what you say I have no empathy with you. My thoughts prelude my dreams Reality is not what it seems. We all die, Some with honour Some before their time Some scream in agony.

And Now You Know Why !

Sometimes................ There is a special moment That happens for no reason That only you will see An awe inspiring vision Of the greatest clarity In that brief time When it all stands still It's then you know The reason that you're here All your pain and suffering Washes over and…

A Hampshire Church

So beat the drum slowly. The swish of their two's. As the bull slowly cracks While the gravel grates A flag covered coffin With a Red beret on top! His six mates a carrying, Some women crying Dressed up for their dad, Brave little soldiers Bewildered small children Whose lives…

WILD LIFE

The flora,the fauna The Canberra’s sauna Horses and sheep. To sing you to sleep. You smell of shit Your body’s sweat. No birds, no bee’s No trees no leaves. 5,000 penguins Fill the beaches The hills, the houses The ships. 5 Bde Is finally here.

I’M SORRY

I feel sorry for you. For the horrors, That you’ve seen. For the way your mind, Has ceased to cope. I feel sorry for your wife. For the terror, That you feel. For the inability, To know. I feel sorry for your children. Who don’t know, What is a shadow?…
