Glazing Over

Clay poppies plant, for those who died
At fighting for the winning side,
Not boys, nor dupes. We much prefer
To think what sporting chaps they were;
For nations always like to play
With flower of youth, and make it clay.

    Nice. As we push toward the next possible European conflagration.
