I do, and I thought you were a self publicising annoying cnut then as well.

No offence.

Taken from the war poetry thread:

Poet_Soldier said:
[align=center]Return of A Fallen Soldier.

Six abreast come marching,
With boots and brasses glow,
Each in step with the time,
Their movements seem to flow.

Slowly they move down the ramp,
A truly perfect stride,
With chins up and backs straight,
It would well you up with pride.

But there are no smiles on this parade,
No crowd applauding,
Just silence and tears on cheeks,
The families in their mourning.

The burden on their khaki shoulders,
Is carried with utmost care,
For inside lays a soldier lost,
And the life the he did share.

They place him within the hearse,
For a procession through the streets,
With salutes shown and colours bowed,
To the sound of marching feet.

Forever we shall remember,
Those that have not returned,
For freedom is never given,
But in blood it is always earned.

22 Sept 09.
Alex Roissetter.

Saw this one written by a squaddie:

Shall I rise again?
From unexpected dark descent?
Shall I be whole again?
To walk, to kiss and smile once more
Along tree lined avenues,
Or to watch you dance on golden shore,
Under cloud strewn sky
Over windswept plain,
Where eagles fly,
Your dress transparent, in the rain,
But I shall not rise again,
Nor lay with you in gentle rest,
No more to run free,
For a red stain blossoms on my chest
Like the poppy you will wear,
To remember me.

He did his basic training
in a cold and awful place
and now he was a soldier
in a real army base

But sadly for the young man
the days of fun would end
for he was down for Afghan
it was a growing trend

From factory to hero
how was he to know?
within a week of landing
it was his time to go?

Another young life wasted
for what? we often ask
loss of life for nothing
an awful thankless task

Write a poem or a sonnet
say its from the heart
then get the writing published
talk bollocks from the start

From personal experience?
I assume you are a clerk
your poem is a load of shite
in fact its out the Ark

No feeling or expression
No heart felt love or loss
I would go as far as saying
your poems are all toss




Hmmmm

Not so hard to do, I might get a book published.

Not a bad Poem Gren, I like it. I didnt say it was hard its just the way I have released my emotions. If you don't want to buy it then thats fine with me cos I don't really give a toss. I'm losing money from making this book anyway but as long as as much as possible goes to H4H i'm fine with that.

Not many people here would be interested in your...er...poetry, but if you can fit in the words "binfantry" and "Ho Ho Ho" you may up your readership.

Hope this has been of some help.

Stop being so corny
