The inscribed tower

The inscribed tower
will be a focal point again
this Sunday
for two minutes

We'll fall silent
as we read the names
their place in the hierarchy
now only of honour

The day they were lost
The years of their lives
No more than those listed
on the inscribed tower

The inscribed tower
village by village
town by town
for those few minutes

We will remember them
at land, sea or in the air
defending their today
so we can have our tomorrow

Not just for two minutes
not just on that one day
but every day
on the inscribed tower
