By heavens light they sail away   Leave a comment


By heavens light they sail away

through Portsmouth’s entrance

across the sea

many sailors have sailed in once

our great navy

 

 

from time of Nelson’s great navy

Copenhagen,Ashanti , Nile and Trafalgar

 

 

to the home of britain royal navy

is where they sail from Portsmouth

a city full of fine magnificent history

 

from great first and second world wars

right back to king henry viii and the Elizabethans

the pride of Portsmouth is known for being mighty

 

 

in modern times Falklands , gulf  and my others times

Portsmouth has had its part to play in history

 

 

Field Marshall Montgomery

even enjoyed his football and watched our local team play

before and many great women and men of our services

left to fight on french beaches at d day

 

 

by heavens light did they sail away

stars guiding them to war and home

again with pride they were guarded by

our many ships of the great

Royal navy

 

Portsmouth the home of our proud Royal Navy

WE WILL ALWAY REMEMBER THE PEOPLE OF WOOTEN BASSET   4 comments


This past week has become the end of something special not often seen

where small group of people got together

to remember the brave and the few

who gave there lives for our country

serving us too

they started as small group of friends

all from the Royal british legion

who came together to mark their respect and pay tribute

to our brave servicemen men and women

as they flew into RAF Lyneham

on their way home too

they passed through the wonderful town

of Wooten basset

where as their hearses gathered

and got ready for their final journey

home where there bodies

will rest and be remembered too

these wonderful people

of Wooten basset took time out of their day

to line the streets in numbers

with the family’s of the dead servicemen and women

as they passed their way

they stood to attention and saluted them

with pride they showed us something

special as their numbers grew

untill they became hundreds and drew in the media too

the local pub opened its doors to families of dead men and women

and made them welcome too

to the people of Wooten basset

are thanks goes out too you

hold your heads up with pride

you are truly kind

and very special people too

so this is from an ex serviceman

with great respect i pay tribute to you.

The fires burn and people flee to as anarchy has this week visited a town near you   Leave a comment


My heart is saddened and i am very upset and angry too

at what is happening on the streets today

innocent people frightened and very scared too

fleeing their homes looking for safety

as people run riot and act with violence too

thieving robbing and mugging and setting fires too

innocent people’s homes businesses without a care

what are they thinking of and where is this going too

injuring police and members of public too

this is britain we are kind and decent too

do we deserve this we are supposed to be human beings

where are the parents and do they care too

about what their children are doing and what they are up to

its shame that discipline is gone at home

and this is what we are left to see

where basic morals have gone

as this week face reality.

time to face the truth as discipline starts at home

and basic parenting too

then we will have law and order restored

and respect with peace and calm on our streets again too.

this is dedicated to all those innocent people who have suffered because of the riots in london you’re in my thoughts.
