Remember The Fallen

He was paid to accept the sovereigns shilling

Knowing exactly what it was for

He had volunteered to join the army

And knew that he would be sent to war

Like many other young men of his day

He knew exactly what he would be expected to do

To risk his life in war on foreign fields

To defend the homeland for me and you

He was prepared to lay down his life

To ensure the the price of freedom was paid

And that is something that we should remember

When the poppies on the Cenotaph are laid

For when we gather to remember the glorious dead

Each year on the second Sunday of November

That our freedom is their everlasting legacy

It is something that we should always remember
