WHERE POPPYS LAY   Leave a comment


Where poppys lay in Flanders field
in memory of those who died and fell
——-
who gave there lives over many days
who didn’t ask for anything that day
————
There courage and bravery as they marched forward to
———
to give us the freedom we have today
let there memorys live on each beautiful day
in Flanders field where poppys lay
Our brave men of honour
we remember you each day

A battle field cry the sound of war   2 comments


The battle may have commenced

we enter into the affray

 

 

scabbards open blades we bare

armour at the ready

guns and cannons blaze everywhere

 

 

do or die is the order

as people mount the stallions

and charge away

 

 

cordite meets the air we breath

as men are slain and soldiers fall

cannons pounding with a mighty roar

 

 

untill the bugle sounds the beat

as silence reigns and we retreat

humble and tired on our weary feet

 

 

battle over for another day

men so gallant and so brave

gave with honour their lives this day

others have fallen lives passed away

 

 

for a moment of glory

their part in history

a memory

Have we forgotten our history   2 comments


From the rising of civilization on the beginnings of this earth

wars have ravaged across lands and sea

warriors have led many an army

 

 

since time began on this land

we have stood struggled armour in hand

to defend what is right in our own mother lands

 

 

but we have forgotten the truth and not faced reality

we are but one in many colour and creed

who once left distant pastures and turf

and travelled across continent and sea

 

 

to form what is now a world

full of different cultures in many countries

 

who once came down from the trees

and lived very primitively.

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

Words flow people breath gods will and humanity   Leave a comment


Words flow people breath

waves rush people see

poems rhyme people speak

life flows humanity grows

 

people die humans cry

crops fail people despair

lives lost do we care

 

people starve while we grow

taps turned on rivers flow

 

sun burns moon glows

tides turn world moves

 

cycle of life does it improve

as rich get richer and poor despair

 

jobs disappear does recession care

people are homeless begging on streets

 

lights switch goes out darkness creeps in

grids go down the world gets cold and lonely

 

earth shakes floods don’t care

rivers destroy towns and devastation everywhere

 

wars go on spreading death everywhere

pestilence runs riot disease  hunger and fear

 

the world is running out of time

and life is at the mercy of gods will

and natures ferocity as powers beyond

take control of life and humanity.

 

They gave there lives for us today in far flung countrys and fields so faraway   Leave a comment


The boots come out and shoes will shine

people gather and await patiently

poppy are pinned to clothes for all to see

the veterans get ready and stand at ease

 

 

awaiting the order to march forward for all to see

they wear the badges and beret and medals too

with pride and honour  the 11th hour is due

 

 

they assemble across the world in many great cities

to remember those who went before them and sacrificed they lives

in the name of king and queen and country

 

 

and those who have given service since the world wars

and many conflicts of today we remember them

as we march forward on this armistice day

 

 

don’t forget us when you go home

as we will always be here resting in fields and country’s so far away

we went in hope and peace and gave our lives so mercifully

for you back there so you could live in a peaceful world today

 

 

for this we honour and remember you on this remembrance day

as the last post sounds from the bugles played

comrades and veterans and family’s to children and parents

 

 

will remember loved ones too who gave so much with such pride courage and bravery for me and you

 

as they gave there lives for us today in far-flung fields and country’s so far away

we stand to attention and salute you  the fallen the brave  and the veterans too

you will be in our hearts always and in our memory’s today and forever may you rest in peace and tranquility.

a minutes silence in your memory.

Heavens torment gods unearthly hell   4 comments


Heavens torment gods unearthly hell

while what he created on this earth we dwell

this earth we live into day

ruined by evil in every way

 

 

practises of a long time ago

still go on each day

the good of life in religion believe

the bad of life sewed evil seeds

 

 

the heavenly angels watch from above

whilst gods work is tried and tested below

while evil has watched its awful seeds grow

 

 

life as we know it has no morals or manners or decency today

what was once politeness has long gone away

our forefathers used to pass the time of day

now very rarely is a good morning said in life today

 

 

times are changing and challenging too

people blow themselves up in  the name of martyrdom

but what do they gain this way

as the suffering they have caused and misery today

as lives lost with casualties every where

 

 

peace on earth is what god wished for

people born in his likeness to follow in his ways

not unholy thoughts death and destruction each day

 

 

while heavenly angels watch over us while god is tormented

in every way

 

 

is life an experiment to test us here

to prepare us for the future it’s not quite clear

while the famous disciples wrote warnings

some of which are very clear

 

 

a time of evil has come our way

a antichrist is among us in life today

we may not see him yet or know

but he is planning and waiting to set our destiny

 

 

with a great battle for all to rise up and see

as the good rise up to heaven

while the evil are left to fight below

as famine rages and earth shakes

fires from the heavens will make the earth quake

 

 

untill evil is finely defeated and cleared

then heavenly lights will shine

and earth will once again be at peace
