My Blood

My Blood 

Splendid soldier you
I'm merely your descendant
barely fit to footstep follow 
I'm discipled , My kindred hero 

Foreign soils desperately dank 
Churchillian's major tactical outflank
Death by bulleted blight
Bastard German bight

Evil eradication in Holland's nether land
Liberation free , Guaranteed
Twas his life he gave 
Home to a war hero's grave

Death knell to heroic soldier blue
And maybe I'm a tad bitter 'tis true 
My Blood lost his life to a gameplan 
After all what's a medal without the man

My tribute to my Grandad 
William Fred Grindrod 
20/12/1918 - 30/11/1944
Who would have been 100 years old today.
