    Restrain your anger
    And run to find some shelter

    Are there only reactions...

  3. 1914-1918 War

    Soldiers Bravely Giving Their Lives For Our Freedom

    They sacrificed their lives, entered the gates of hell,
    Onward they stumbled, while all around them fell,
    War weary, ragged, faces dirt encrusted, black.
    Impatient for the whistle, ready for attack.

  4. Brave American Knight

    • By David G. Moore
    • Published: November 2019
    A Forgotten Veteran

    Driving home one day after hours of monotonous office work,
    Saw a man sitting by the road; looked as one down on his luck.
    Paid small notice to the figure; my lonely life was in a rut.
    He was just another beggar holding out a shiny tin cup.

  7. A Letter Home

    Truth About Fighting A War

    I left home at seventeen to fight for King and country,
    I signed up to a hero's welcome and proudly marched away,
    We departed with pride in our hearts, sure we'd be home by Christmas,
    The Hun was an easy catch, at least that's what they told us.

    You're somewhere far away doing what you must

  10. Beat! Beat! Drums!

    Beat! beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow!
    Through the windows—through doors—burst like a ruthless force,
    Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation,
    Into the school where the scholar is studying,

    At the Western Front where we defend
    Among the dead bodies of foe and of friend

    Fired his last round.
    Looked at his friend,
    Fatally wounded.
