Lest we forget

By 18th August 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

Have we forgotten their ultimate sacrifice?
Of these men and women who died in their millions?
Brave and true, without question,
proud to be British, not ashamed to be Christian.

So many years have past,
it seems our memory doesn’t last.
Forgetting these courageous people to our shame.
Why can’t we remember their names?

How short is our memory?
That we have forgotten them already.
Died in their millions fighting for our freedom,
believing in our free democratic ideology.

What does it take to wake up this country,
to rise once again from its complacency?
How much more do we take, before we decide to fight,
for our beliefs, our traditions and our liberty?
