There was a war long time ago
In places that we did not know
So many years now in our past
Proof of length that memories last.
Both young and old were forced to fight
Across the globe or out of sight
A war that simply parried on
Left none untouched here or beyond.
Now I am old but can recall
Those shadows cast upon my wall
With forgotten names that I’d known
Redemptions’ chance all but unknown.
Oh, someone should research this tale
Ere soon we shall completely fail !
