Death On The Day of Remembrance

11 November 2015


Death shall have its dominion

After all is said and done

Year on year we remember more


Clearly as the leaves fall

Between the headstones

Drifting down centuries


Of endless war, as babies drown

On Mediterranean shores

And the rape of Syria


Wearies the world

In its cocoon before climate

Change wakes us all from


The Sleep of Us Undead.

But the woman my humanity

Holds me to be, has hope


Though not in my lifetime

Perchance sometime

A young girl will dance


Where once Death stalked

Will sing where Blood spilt

In Her Life we shall be reborn.
