Men in our day

Two women on the train.

‘They should bring back national service:

Men in our day were brave.

Young people now have no idea.’

I think of Iraq and Afghanistan,

of dead young lads – millennials –

paraded in coffins. Repatriated only

to the brass military band falling on

deaf, dead, ears.

Men in your day were brave.

Men and women in our day are brave too.
