Lest We forget
n Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields

Well done Ghosthunter. My step-dad was a dispatch rider in WWII. He had some sad and amazing stories. Lest we forget...

Honor the fallen!

Kill a POO that convinced them war is necessary.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there; I do not sleep I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there; I did not die. They will not die as long as we all remember them and what they did for our country.
