ANZAC DAY 25th April

To the thousands of Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought and lost their lives in the first world war as part of the Australian and New Zealand Army corps (ANZACs)


The ODE

They shall grow not old

as we that are left grow old

Age shall not weary them

nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun

and in the morning

we will remember them.


LEST WE FORGET

Why a red poppy? Is it a Flanders Field allusion or something?

What a waste
That's what happens when you get arrogant pig British generals at gallipoli that show no respect for the crappy little country 'Australia' they settled 150 years ago. Wave after wave came out and got mowed down and the British continued to send them out. Poor guys. I will never remember those who died as heros (much too loose of a term nowadays), just victims of circumstance and severe incompetance.
Nevertheless......lest we forget

Yes. The poppy is a lasting memorial symbol to the fallen, it was realised by the Canadian surgeon John McCrae in his poem In Flanders Fields. The poppy came to represent the immeasurable sacrifice made by his comrades and quickly became a lasting memorial to those who died in the First World War and later conflicts.

It warrants repeating:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.


Gets me every time. Every single time.

Lest we forget.

"bang! goes another kanga
On the bonnet of the van.
See the light ram through the gaps in the land.
Many an aborigines mistaken for a tree
til you near him on the motorway
And the tree begin to breathe.
See the light ram through the gaps in the land.

(ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha)

Coming in with the golden light
In the morning.
Coming in with the golden light
Is the new man.
Coming in with the golden light
Is my dented van.

Woomera.

Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me-me-me,

Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
Woomera.
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-
I-i-i-i-i-
Me-me-me-me-me.

Dree-ee-ee-ee-ee-
A-a-a-a-a-
M-m-m-m-m-
Ti-ti-ti-ti-ti-

The civilised keep alive
The territorial war.
See the light ram through the gaps in the land.
Erase the race that claim the place
And say we dig for ore,
Or dangle devils in a bottle
And push them from the pull of the bush.
See the light ram through the gaps in the land.
You find them in the road.
See the light bounce off the rocks to the sand.
In the road."
