    100 years since the Somme
    Remembrance no we weren't there
    Do we even have the brain
    To contemplate death and pain
    That took place in the cold mud
    Shedding of so much young blood
    On a scale that we revile
    We may not remember
    We must not forget

    So much blood, loss and sadness. So much humanity destroyed for the greed and hate of others. You say we must not forget (I agree) but obviously we do. We keep fighting wars all based on the same greed, we keep losing young men for someone else's reasons. We remember and we forget.

    Lovely poem

      Thank you I agree that we do forget but we need care as our destructive capacities increase. A war of that scale could now destroy the planet
