    Between Wars


    With the dog casting on ahead,

    in the dust of a summer

    road where ways

    met, a grassy

    verge gave me pause,

    There I came upon a Great War Cross.

    Inlaid, the martial sword of bronze stained

    green the Purbeck stone at who's foot

    inset the claim 'For King and Country'

    and Roll of Honoured Names

    were framed in verdigris.

    In that, it left unsaid,

    "They died for

    a politician's word."
