ahhhhhhhhh so sad they manipulate men
A beautiful poem really reflects on the reality of war
My grandad 👴 was in the war it was so sad that all of the soliders died.
A beautiful poem, about a horrific subject, unfortunately, as today, young men were brainwashed into believing that what they were doing was right, noble, heroic, for their country, but also, as today, they were just cannon fodder!
sad poem of misled wishful thinking? surely not just English heavens above?
Were the sentiments of the soldier fair and genuine? .......... Patriotism is something good.But, for what purpose one has to die in the name of the country is a question. Very much thought provoking.
