ANZAC - Lest we forget

by Remie

The poppys filled the fields that day,
In silence mass of bodies lay,
Obstruction of innocence led by hate,
And Hitler the leader of this debate,

Forever in our memories shall it lie,
As hopes of those at home did die,
The rain washed away the blood,
Shed from those who died in the mud,

And at rest our thoughts and prayers,
Our tears once a year shed,
For the loss who died in vein,
And those that left that fateful day in the rain,

The names of those we never knew,
Engraved on plaque for all to view,
The ones who truly paid the price,
For us to live in paradise,

Lest We Forget.
