We thought that you asked us to win the war.
And we won it. What more could we do?”
“We had to defend the land,
And these things always come at a cost,
Surely you understand.”
I just did what I was told.
And anyway I was simply a kid.
I was killed at twenty years old.”
The horror, the killing the pain?
It seems like the truth. But if it is true,
Why it's certain to happen again.
PS: I managed to find the bit that was in the Lymington times about my dad's books today. It's up on the website.
