Last Flight

Squadron leader to his Sergeant.

Another fatality Felicity,
another regimental letter of commiseration,
another space to type in with a name a rank
another space to enter our lives,
on this the darkest of days.
He was my friend Felicity,
an old school chum; we joined up together
for the cause; for dear old Blighty
naively for the thrill.
Here, the earring he wore around his neck
soon to be reunited with the one
his sweetheart holds most dear,
her tatty old airline ticket, also soon to be reunited
with his the one she holds, a memento
of their first meeting on a flight to Paris ‘38’.
Sergeant! Empty your ashtray it’s disgusting.

    Did you mean Memento? I sometimes end up with different words because of spell checker so I thought that might be the case with "momentum".

    Very emotional poem. I like the way you repeat 'another' at the beginning. It drives home the message that this was not an isolated incident, it happened repeatedly on a daily basis.

    The ending is cold, and reality check. I love that twist on this sadness!
