    In stalingrad the steets we clear
    from house to house, we tread in fear
    clinging on to every wall
    that said here! other soldiers fall

    moving quietly through the rubble
    slowly breathing, fear is double
    up each stair I carefully go
    expectance! I will meet the foe

    step by step, gun in hand
    in each room a soldier stands
    ready to take my life he waits
    and I, his too, his death awaits

    darkness creeps across the floor
    whispering noises creaking door
    sweat pours out, the beads run down
    sensing death I turn around

    moving onward closing in
    I feel the enemy, here within
    ever felt your lungs exploding
    will there be time for reloading

    searchlights shine along the street
    lighting up, shadowy feet
    can the german that I see
    somehow have been watching me

    room to room "CLEAR" rings out
    forward into hightened doubt
    hearing! fearing! german sounds
    closing in on killing grounds

    life passes by, feeling low
    only one more room to go
    across the floor, I move, I tread
    seen many combat soldiers, dead

    ending on the winning side
    stop the hun, stem the tide
    breaking out, breaking in
    defeating the enemy within

    one more push the battlles done
    last room cleared, there on the run
    I've lived to fight another day
    god the fear is over, thankyou, I pray..

    R.T.W.2010.....house to house...

    "Remember Us"

    I gave my life
    it was not taken
    I did not weep
    in death I sleep

    I shall not waken
    nor die in vain
    heed the lesson
    learn it well

    a better place
    for you to face
    dont look back
    dont look round

    I sleep a sleep
    there is no sound
    remember us
    remember us..

    remembrance day poem..

    R.T.W. today 11.11.10

    The Ode of Remembrance, Laurence Binyon;


    FOR THE FALLEN.
    With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
    England mourns for her dead across the sea.
    Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
    Fallen in the cause of the free.

    Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
    Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres.
    There is music in the midst of desolation
    And a glory that shines upon our tears.

    They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
    Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
    They fell with their faces to the foe.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.


    They mingle not with laughing comrades again;
    They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
    They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
    They sleep beyond England's foam.

    But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
    Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
    To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
    As the stars are known to the Night;

    As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
    Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
    As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
    To the end, to the end, they remain.
    LAURENCE BINYON

    A remembrance day poem......

    poppy's bloom where soldiers die
    poppy's bloom where here I lie
    poppy's bloom in fields of red
    poppy's bloom to mark the dead
    poppy's bloom where soldiers fought
    poppy's bloom in ponderous thought
    poppy's bloom and bough there head
    poppy's bloom to mourn the dead
    poppy's bloom they bend and wave
    poppy's bloom where life we gave
    poppy's bloom to help remember
    poppy's bloom to mark november
    poppy's bloom on armistice day
    poppy's bloom new life we pray
    poppy's bloom for eleven eleven
    poppy's bloom for soldiers in heaven
    poppy's bloom in thought, in mind
    poppy's bloom to remind mankind

    R.T.W. 11.11.10..to mark remebrance day..

    I wish you all to end the year
    a better one than this we leave
    to much of life the sadness left
    to want good cheer in times ahead
    never forget lost ones that served
    never lose sight of soldiers last words
    always remember the way that we do
    memory is all that some have, and you
    hearts were broken in this past year
    more will follow that I fear
    just hope is what we welcome near
    calling loved ones, that brings us cheer
    around the world we long to hear
    voices wishing christmas cheer
    loved ones talking words that ease
    keep our flame glowing long
    keep this world safe and strong
    hearts that beat together say
    hold on world were here to stay
    wish your loved ones wish them well
    hold on to feelings that they may dwell
    upon this season of goodwill
    may your day be merry, your day be swell
    hold onto xmas that your children you tell
    long into the night a christmas bell rings
    when the man in red his presents he brings
    may your wishes be filled, with wonderful things
    and carollers call, and carols they sing
    hope yours is a wonderful day
    happy xmas to you, on this magical day.


    R.T.W 2010 a xmas poem

    Twas the Night Before Christmas In Prison

    Twas the night before Christmas and all through the cells
    The convicts were locked up all madder than hell.
    Except for the lifers, kicked back in their bunks,
    heads filled with visions of fat little punks.

    When suddenly from the roof top there arose such a roar
    that the bulls thought it was a riot for sure!
    The goon squad ran in and stood ready to hit
    then the block guard yelled out who started this $h1+!

    It came from the roof top, sniveled a snitch;
    It must be a breakout! Oh, son-of-a-@%#^%!
    They climbed to the roof, by way of the stairs
    Found a fat little freak, in red underwear.

    No, No yelled the dude, I bring you good cheer
    God %a#m! said the Captain. We found us a queer!
    Alright mother %@#)er get your hands on the wall.
    They shook him down good, a$@#($ and all.

    They beat him and threw him in the hole with a kick;
    Well so much for Christmas, they locked up St. Nick!

    Stumbled across this old post, and find that it fits into this times with Afghanistan and Iraq and all the other places as well as it fitted to WW1! DidnĀ“t lost anything of its actuallity only a few changes and it would be perfect for today too.
