And never be dismissed
The price of freedom never undermined””

‘CLEVER ARTWORK FROM HUFF POST UK’


This year represents 75 years since WW2 in Europe ended, freedom was restored, fascism was defeated and both my now dead granddads got to get back home to the land they’d left behind. Without those two men I wouldn’t exist.


LET THEIR NAMES BE SHOUTED OUT


Let the ghosts of soldiers travel light
Through the gravestones and the moonless night
Till they make it back to the home they left behind


Let their memory persist
And never be dismissed
The price of freedom never undermined


Let their names be shouted out
From here, there and all throughout
The liberated lands of human kind


Forget them and their history
Then there was no glorious victory
Just wasted tombstones standing in a line
