FAILING THE DEAD




One hundred years and still we fail



The fallen dead of Passchendaele



Who fought a war to end all wars



Believing in their righteous cause



Yet year on year we fight again



Inflicting misery and pain



Those Spirits of The First World War



Must wonder what their death was for



Pray God that sense will soon prevail



A lesson learnt from Passchendaele
