It was just before down
one miserable morning in black fourty-four
when the Forward Commander was told to sit tight when the asked that his men be withdrawn
and the Generals gave thanks as the other ranks held back the enemy thanks for a while
and the Anzio Brighthead was held for the price
of a few hundred ordinary lives

And kind old King George
sent Mother a note
when he heard that Father was gone
it was, it recall, in the form of a scroll
with gold leaf and all
and I found it one day
in a drawer of photographs
hidden away
and my eyes still grow damp
to remember His Majesty
signed with his own rubber stamp
Taken from
It was dark all around
there was frost in the ground
when the tigers broke free
and no one survived
from the Royal Fusiliers Company C
they were all left behind
most of them dead
the rest of them dying
and that´s how the High Command took my Daddy from me.
