Lest We Forget

When the war was over,
and the fighting had been done
The people that were left alive
realised no one had won.
So they said that we should learn from this
and teach our children well
So they wouldn’t make the same mistakes
and live through the same hell
But instead of showing them what was lost,
they told them what was gained,
they sang about the hero’s,
but not the dead and maimed,
They let them watch the victory films
and sing the victory song
Then they watched them all march off to war,
and wondered where they’d gone wrong.
