There was a bridge in the Great War

That both sides had been fighting for

So many died in that one fight

From early morn to darkest night

Tis true that they performed their best

Though in the end all failed that test.

They died there by the River Somme

As back and forth all hell did come

Of Brits alone some price to pay

Fifty-eight thousand fell that day

Now this occured lifetimes ago

And none are left who really know

But tell me please if any can

What does this say about a man ?

The hopes of a nation are at stake

Our country’s heart is ready to break

See the facade of all that we are

No more a dream but a falling star.

It matters little what we desire

Because  we are a people afire

The disease is swift consuming all

Hypocrites stand awaiting the fall !

The sands of time slip fast away

To herald passing of each day

The seeds of life lie in decay

Among the remnants cast away.

Where is the truth we know to be

Tight bound in chains across the sea

Who will escape this mutiny

And who at last shall set us free ?

A gasp, a sigh, some sign of life

Those battle scars after the strife

A dusty road strewn with debris

A shattered world is left to see

The sadness lingers on it seems

The vanquished have forgot their dreams !
