  5.     

Education, Education.

How very well I remember
The Second World War
And Winston Churchill's Coalition.
Parents of grammar school children
Seeked assistance with their mission.
Education was the Act of the day...
School fees were no more,
Great news for the poor.
The school leaving age was increased,
Slightly higher than before.
Yes, an important Act calmed all fears
During those memorable wartime years.

Darkest Days

The traumatic Holocaust of World War Two
caused mass murder of Jewish society.
God's children ~ neglected, rejected
suffering great crime against humanity.
Thousands of victims, pale with fear
regretted the hour and day they were born.
From one hell to another they were led...
sharp was the thorn of history's cold morn.

To heaven they prayed, each man and maid
as from weary eyes, teardrops fell.
And deep down in their hearts they knew
a flame was near, with the force of a gale.
Weeping, wheezing ~ the last farewell,
drifting on smoky breeze, wording obscured.
The smell of gas came seeping through
as the Holocaust inferno ended their world.

  7.     

Words are Everything

Diamond:

Education
and Inspiration
words that go together
we use them in our poetry
romantic literature and parody
well-written compositions
in the cultured world of
Inspiration and
Education

  8.     

Eleven-Eleven-Eleven

Rictameter:

'Poppies'
Of Flanders Fields
Tell the world your story
Oh the horror in world war one
Soldiers dying and the threat of the gun
You are the 'flower of the hour'
And we will always wear
Our Flanders Field
'Poppies'
