Merry Crimbo Heros

DSCF3686 (640x480)

Christmas is a time for families so we’re told
But not for those alone or old
We oft forget that not all families
Are kind and good some are uncaring bad and cold
They do not care for those who are old

Then there are those who are alone
Because they are too afraid to go home
No love is there just abuse and hate
The things that lots of us do not equate
They have no choice but to stay away on Gods birthday

Or those who gave their limbs or sanity in serving Queen and country
Alone in their alone in their sad and lonely world
Not able to reach out or to be heard
But bravely they just soldier on in a country that has done them a great wrong
But they are not as alone as they may think

Or those who can not survive because of this governments pride
Who give to others while their country dies
Rich men who rule Great Britain remain ignorant of the UK’s shame
They do not care or even know the plight of
People in London Birmingham Leeds and other cities

On streets they freeze because alone
They have no place to call their home
But unlike Scrooge they have angles near
Who really care all through the year
When the MOD deserts those who gave

Or this Government discards those who do not fit
Into their view of perfect beings who are rich
Then two groups of people dedicated to humanity and souls
The Salvation Army and B.L.E.S.M.A. take up arms
They care they help and blend in because they are always there

To these people we should give any monies we can spare
They go out and do not care if it is snowing just that
People realise that someone cares in a country that’s lost its way
Hero’s who will fight and pray
That people in need will find a better day

God Bless them both is what I say
Hand on heart though far away
I am proud to know both of these groups
As an airman I have seen the love BLESMA for service peeps
As a civilian to The Salvation Army I think is grand

A selfless band of angels they I always give when in the UK
They are the nearest thing to true selfless acts that I know
So to these two groups my Christmas blessing it does go
God bless you both and protect you from all harm
You are needed by humanity may you never come to harm

God Bless the Salvation Army and BLESMA on Christmas day

Lest We Forget

There on the Flanders fields we lay
We gave our bodies but our souls still stay
The war was bloody in trenches lay
Other fallen heroes

We fought for freedom we fought for peace
Our country needed us we answered the call
But death was all most of us found
We now lie here beneath the ground

Then politicians never learn or heed
The lessons of the past they ignore
Again the ugly head of war rose up
More souls in fields lay down to rest

Silent cemeteries now abound
Across the lands where once we fought
Cared for by those who remember us who lie
Under green of grass and blue of sky

Whilst over our heads is swathes of red
Sway poppies who remember us the dead
So plant some poppies in a corner shade
In honour of the dead and the brave

Remember them upon their day
For they never again will pass this way
For thoses who are left be proud of them
They are our Heroes our honoured ones

Wear your poppy with pride to show
They did not die in vain then turn to
The brave who are still alive and show
We are grateful and we care

REMEMBER THEM!
