Remembrance Day Again

REMEMBRANCE DAY AGAIN

The dead are long dead
TV robots wear poppies
The wars continue
Empty platitudes distract
Lest we question quid pro quo

  2. Ben, My Husband Hunter and I both agree with this powerful statement you have made for “Remembrance Day.” It is masterful.

  3. Astute truth… alas….
    (I like to watch Star Trek NG re-runs – a time in the future when the “federation” has evolved beyond war, poverty, dogma, etc. It’s visionary – I only hope this happens some century. But it won’t, without action in the NOW – as you often say, that’s all we have.)

  4. I really hope we can move beyond wars one day – though I am not sure if that day will ever come.
