Remember me

I remember your stories

Of bombs and guns

Of decimated hills and homes

And broken dreams and destinies!

I remember the thunder that broke backs

That tore the roof off our homes

And brought hardship upon babies

I remember you the victor

Who took our children

And made them men,

Men which became slaves

And must flow with the waves

Of a failed nationhood!

I remember tales of portruding bellies

And men who enjoyed seeing fellow men dead

The rat-tattling of heavy machine gun

Which drove children away from their homes

And killed the soul of men who called us conmonwealth
