Futility

Clipart image of a poppy

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 14 July 2022, trust.

In the trenches, their faces deadpan,
They were ordered, “Fix bayonets! Advance!”
At a quarter to Eight,
They attacked with blind faith.
And were mown down, left dead, to a man.

A mes amis français, je vous souhaite un joyeux quatorze. Liberté, égalité, fraternité!
