Lest We ForgetHave 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?
by Simon Icke, Buckinghamshire. UK.
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
