There they Lie.
Tommy stood with gun in hand
Upon Armistice Day
The silence he didn’t understand
His comrades all gone away.
He spoke softly to his sergeant
"Have we won sarge? Have we won”?
"Yes we’ve won my lad” the sergeant said
"Yes we’ve won, my son”.
"But where are all my mates sarge?
Have they gone, have they gone”?
Sarge gestured to the poppy fields
"There they are son, every bloody one.
But we won”.
