THEN and NOW

THEN

Knitting balaclavas and socks for War
Purling ladder stitching for warming him
Knitting needles clack
Sirens sound
Knit one, purl one
To help the one you love

NOW

Mailing Afghanistan his food for tour
Email campaigning for full body armour
Computer mouse clicks
Nimrods fail
Texting, surfing
To save the one you love
