Prompt – Lest we forget.
I wanted to do something different this week and use repetition and alliteration. A link with ‘Remember, remember’ from last week, extended. What do think, does it work for you?
Wounded World deeply damaged from fatal fighting.
Savage scars, brutal battles; death, destruction. Political power, consuming control driving dictators to totalitarian atrocious atrocities. Famine, families grieving, guns, perpetual pain. Wounded warriors, families fractured, nightmare, no glory gained.
Poppies worn, lest we forget, the ultimate price paid for our freedom,
Poppies worn, lest we forget, the value of freedom,
Poppies worn, lest we forget, those still suffering for our freedom,
Poppies worn, lest we forget, our contribution to future freedom,
Lives living, hopes healing, spirits soaring. Democracy delivering, actions approving, on-going opportunities, fulfilling futures, giving growing hope here and all around our wounded World.
(Not sure how well democracy is delivering currently, but there is the ideal!)
