Colours One

Two men of colours white and black

Battling as foes, lay dying on a track

Their colour or creed mattered none

For blood that gushed had colours one


 

Whatever our colour or creed

Outstanding construction. The message of peace and the futility of war conveyed through the dead unknown soldier.
