ANZAC DAY – Lest We Forget

the millions of lives lost or destroyed by the tragedy and futility of all wars.



(A poem by Dennis Mealor (c) 2020):


I think upon an Anzac Day

Of children playing

Soldier play.

Of plastic guns and lying still

When you get shot,

When you get killed.

And staying down for the count of ten,

Then getting up and killed again. 

And killed a thousand times or more.

Get used to it,

Here comes a war.
