Poppy (Reblog)

It is not because
I like nation states,
Or war mongers,
Or statesmen, large and small.
It is not because
I favour cavalries,
Or divisions,
Or categories of law.
It is not because
Choking men,
In a trench of water ankle deep
Is a memory to keep.
It is because these men
Thought it right.
And for all liberties
Overcame fears to fight.
