#Somme (8): two pennies up (for the ambulance)

Shapleys Grave #2

Shapley’s Grave #1

the ambulance
is
one man short

there’s nothing
to be done
about that

harry
won’t be serving
anymore

he’s at his peace
at least
I suppose that’s so

more for him
than us
for sure

there’s no point
though
in being maudlin

someone
must take up
the stretcher
he bore

it’s either
you
or me

so come

let’s toss the pennies
