This was penned this 11/11 and where it came from I’ve no idea, I’m not a poet (as can clearly be seen) more a fiction writer – perhaps distant thoughts of family who’d served and of course the countless others. It was suggested that perhaps it would be good as a video, so me and my trusty Korg T2EX did the music, the images are public domain.
Lay Your Weary Head.
Through mud they trudged
As deep as their knees
Thoughts lingered on
Many had gone but many stayed
In unmarked graves
Were where they laid
From friends a silent prayer was said
Then over the top they went ahead
Bullets cut them down en masse
Some they say should have been in class
Learning English, ‘rithmetic and fun
But battle on, they did as one
Now lay your weary head old soldier
Your battles fought your war is over
No need to remember what you’ve done
Your memories live on in everyone
Lest We Forget

Yep that’s right, I sat there n read through the sites stat’s and had a good ol’ chuckle 🙂 someone from Duncan Oklahoma spent over arf n hr wanderin’ the site – you’d be surprised how many spammers are getting blocked though.
Apart from that, I’ve been creating 3D video animations, talk about time consuming *shrug* only got a squillion more to do, ranging from 2 mins in length to 7 or 8 mins each.
Oh well, 10pm, old body sayin “SLEEP YA PRAT” so onwards n upwards I go.
