You may not like my lack of silence
But then we all remember in different ways
The wars and the undemocratic violence
In past years and in our current days

You can wear a poppy, or visit a grave
Write a poem or sign a petition
Lay your wreaths, but don't be slaves
For if it's personal to you, ignore the derision

So I'm not being rude, I'm not willing to conform
I'll ponder and think on what I stand for
I'll not stand in line for the cultural 'norm'
And remember to never forget there's no glory in war
