Headlines No Longer

“I made the Papers today,
Page six, last column,
Right hand page.

That’s me there, yes,
Twenty three, young wife,
Two beautiful daughters.

I know its only eight lines,
But what do you expect?
I’m not that famous.

Just a young man,
A Father, a Son, a Soldier,
Killed five years after it started.”
