On Armistice Day

The guns fell silent
all those years ago
They started up again
a few years later

The guns fell silent
as they eventually do
After many people
have fallen silent

We remember
those that fought
those that fell victim
We try to learn

We remember
by old stones
by memorials
all their names

Yet do we learn
We promise to
but always fail
to learn the lesson

The guns fell silent
that day in November
Let's hope one day
It'll be for good
