Creative Brief



I see you stand and read the words

Little said at all

Your hand recarves a history

A Man, a life, a fall


I hear the shouts, the duty call

The farewell gift from home

Your hand retraces every line

Forever set in stone


Still smell much more than gas in here

So awake and so alive

Your hand reaches back to touch this man

On this day I survive


I did not live in black and white

I did not live to win this fight

I did not live to end all wars

I did not live for any cause


You turn away, your duty done

Tears flow down to earth below

Your memory is all I hold

All I have to show


And once a year you bring me back

In dreams I've never known

Then I dig this grave again

To stand once more in stone



This is written after watching the premiere of Peter Jackson's "They shall not grow old" and also looking again at relatives who did not survive back in 1914-1918. As regards the music, I would imagine it spoken rather than sung. Among many others, my two great uncles, Peter McCarthy and Michael McCarthy were lost in this conflict. It's soon to be 100 years since its end and we seem to have learned very little since then, sadly. This is therefore for them. The picture above is Peter McCarthy.  His gravestone is here:
