The War To End Wars

11th November, 1918 - Armistice Day

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month guns fell silent; peace was declared the war the end wars was over.

I wonder what those who fought and died and those who fought and survived would think if they could see that ninety years later, parts of the world are still at war? In fact I wonder what the three remaining WW1 British veterans really do think?

For the last three years I have shared poems about Remembrance Day by lesser known poets. I have also tried to find poems that aren't specifically aimed at any war in particular. Today I am continuing that theme.
