War 

Under a canopy of green and grey.Here youth fought and some stayed.

Leaving innocence and life behind.

For fields of thunder where evil mines.

Reaping hate from love here starts.

Forever changing humanities giving hearts.

Rows of Crosses, stars and crescent moons.

Under earthen blankets like deaths teeth fields festooned.

Why come you far from home.

Waring nations giving your own.

Retreat before we hates repeat.

Hands not arms shake and live in peace.

Life is measured by the loves we share.

Not medals or blood make a nation that cares.

Find with us here this moment.

With hope, charity and love, nothing else we covet.
