Truth

Philip Dodd, Author of Angel War Blog

Truth

Those who have got will get more,
those who have not will stay poor.
A few are loved by millions for a song.
Many are loved by no one
and never will belong.
If you think that’s not right,
tell me where it’s wrong.
If your path leads to light,
fight to remain strong.

Truth is a thin, upright line,
sewn on bare cloth,
unmistakable, once found.
Falsehood is a mesh,
a tangle of wire, rusted rods,
burnt signs, dusty flags,
inwoven, bolted to the ground.

The fields are green on the Somme now,
as they ought to be.
One hundred years gone
since men fought to be free of war,
for children in peace
to play with the tides on the shore.
