Lest We Forget. Friday Fictioneers

Word Count 93.

I wrote a poem for this prompt. I hope it is acceptable. Thanks to Sandra Crook for the photo prompt.

The rugged tower of rock

stood reaching for the sky

it was made to remember heroes

Men, much braver than you or I.


Blindly they ran, walked or rode

into battle with the enemy unseen,

men also brave, onward they strode

whose intent was just as keen.


They clashed on the beaches,

and the rocky hills above

They fired guns in anger

for a country they so loved.


Among them was no victor

no winner could be seen

just rivers of blood which flowed

over hills that once were green.

Lest We Forget.

  1. Lest we forget, for there are people now, this very day, fighting wars of insanity, under the banners of this or that, in rivers of blood.
    We can do so much better than that ….
    Well done.

  2. A very touching tribute to the fallen.

  3. A good take on the prompt. War is almost always futile.

  4. More than acceptable. The history of man’s inhumanity toward man.

  5. VERY acceptable. Very thought-provoking. Thank you.
