Remembering the Fallen

Veteran on Remembrance Sunday, Kensington War Memorial, London

I do not know your name, but I know you died 
I do not know from where you came, but I know you died 
 
Your uniform, branch of service, it matters not to me 
Whether Volunteer or Conscript, or how it came to be 
That politicians’ failures, or some power-mad ambition 
Brought you too soon to your death, in the name of any nation
– Kenny Martin, 2003
