The Poppy Is A Symbol

The poppy is a symbol

The poppy is a symbol
For those who have gone before
Whilst fighting for this country
Sometimes in times of war

So many killed in battle
By a bullet or a device
Lots suffered wounds and scars
Which were not very nice

Sights seen that lasted a lifetime
Leaving a psychological scar so unkind
Many seen their friends killed or injured
And colleagues bodies left behind

Through wartime things happened
Because orders were being dictated
Although they did the necessary
Many of things were personally hated

Every year we dedicate the heroes
And all with many thanks
Army, Sailors and pilots
Frontline Infantrymen and those within tanks
