BONFYRE POEM

REMEMBER REMEMBER
THE 5TH OF NOVEMBER
AND STAND SILENT

STAND SILENT WHERE MARTYRS
BURNED FOR BELIEFS,
AND GAVE UP THEIR SOULS
WHERE WE LAY POPPY WREATHS.

This Was Their Finest Hour Lewes Martyrs

AND IF FOOLS BREAK SILENCE
WITH TALK AND NOISE,
REMIND THEM OF HISTORY,
AND FAMILIES DESTROYED,
OF BOMBS ON THE TOWN
AND BRAVE LEWES TEENAGE BOYS.
FIGHTING BEFORE THEY WERE MEN.
AND HUNDREDS MORE NAMES IN BRONZE
THAT ONCE WERE PEOPLE,
JUST LIKE THEM.

Brave Lewes Fighting Boys

THEN DEMAND THAT THEY STAND
WITH SILENT RESPECT –
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE GONE,
AND FOR THOSE WHO SERVE FOR THEM YET.

REMEMBER REMEMBER

GOD BLESS THE BONFYRE
BOYES AND GYRLS
