Never Again: A Remembrance Day Poem #SpiritualitySundays

It was ninety years ago,
The end of a terrible war,
Millions say, Never Again!

Never again the pain and sorrow,
Never again the bombs of tomorrow,

Never again the smell of gas,
Never again the death of mass,

Never again the bombs and red sky,
Never again all who die,

Never again the rations of starvation,
Never again the sadness of evacuation,

Never again the air raids and dying,
Never again the shooting and crying,

Never again the horror of war,
That’s why we say
Never again

Scott Beer, Aged 10 (Nov 2008)
