On Rememberance Day

The young men who died in wars from their homelands far away
In some parts of the World are remembered today
By the more patriotic who see war as okay
Yet what did they die for can anyone say?
They could not have died for peace since troops today in battles engaged
And war over borders and God are still waged
The war drums are beating in every war memorial parade
And the blame not all on one side when enemies are made
At the war memorial a bugler the last post does play
On the eleventh of November Rememberance Day
Yet war and it's brutality does not have a use by date
And in every battle more heroes to celebrate
And on Rememberance day in the town by the sea
The National flag at half mast on the town hall i do see.
