    This one is a rare find. It is very well penned, with a good rhyme and flow. It has the power to transport me to the moment. Good job!

    wow, some HEAVY stuff, but VERY well written!! If it's all dizain form, that is amazing. One of your best! I can't believe i did not see it yet. It seems a bit familiar to me. Maybe I read someone else who had done a similarly magnificent poem against war.

    Such a touching and real description of war that takes our best to do the worst, as is said. Too sad...but an excellent verse in Dizian form with brilliant flow and superb use of language. Well done David!

    Hey, you did great with this dizain, David. "In foreign lands to free oppressed/ In khaki coloured battle dress." -- flows very well. The last stanza was a strong finish for sure, including all the possible emotional turmoils of the "too young or old to be enrolled", as they supported mourning mothers. I have been terrible lately with leaving comments with people....any comments. Since you are hanging out on the Soup, I am ass.uming your wife is doing better, which is nice to 'see'! Sincerely.

    Very intense write David, so well described it leaves one to ponder silently with aching heart for lost soldiers, broken families and lost love. Glad you are back among us David, stay strong. xxx vie

    WW1 and after bloody ww1 our returning boys, were bloody numb, to walk the roads, with a swag outback, to live on rabbit on the track, half crazed from bomb and gas attack, as crazy seen by some, old soldiers on their rum, when they could get em some, outback... re: Dave Williams excellent "The King's Shilling" Don Johnson
