fourteen fifteen



one hundred years since
the war “over by Christmas”
still faced four more

and two centuries
since Boney was yet to face
the first Waterloo

and eight hundred years
since “bad” King John would yet meet
his Runnymede

countless millions
still have their fates, their futures
settled by so few

          It’s great that there’s a ‘like’ button for comments as well as posts, but I and no doubt others use it as an acknowledgement, a notification that the comment has been read. If only there was a choice of buttons: Like. Agree. Seen it. Meh. Well, maybe not the last, it’s a bit rude, but no doubt that’s how many might feel.
