Remember Poem

by Yorkshire Prose

ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL.

LEST WE FORGET  

ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL

A cap badge of honours on a beret of green,

One of the best sights, I’ve ever seen.

A rifle and sword, no bayonet in sight,

Weak at drill but strong in the fight.

The command of the bugle, played high on a hill,

Still through my body I feel the chill,

What makes them best? I hear people say,

They gave their tomorrow so you have today.

They are normal men at first glance,

But listen to their stories if given a chance,

As these Riflemen have seen it all

Fighting worldwide and seeing brothers fall.

So on the 11th hour, please have a thought,

For all the brave Riflemen that went and fought.

Lest we Forget

We will remember them all

Swift and Bold.
