Hours used to stretch

For children time was endless

Where did those days go?

This world is not mine

Old values now eroded

Respect is extinct

The law no longer protects

To be upstanding is wrong

My granddad was brave

A veteran of two wars

He fought for us all

I’m glad he can’t see this land

That his fight was all in vain
