Good Evening folks
We were out again last night, to a Barn Dance, it wasn't in a Barn and I didn't dance, but what the hell, go with the flow!

Not I, they should be banned. They are dangerous explosives that disturb the peace.
Now they are available, and let off, all year round the novelty has worn off.

we have also had fireworks going off at 11am today while it was hammering down with bloody rain we have loads of them going off tonight, it's a Duvali apparently, I was thinking of ordering an Indian takeaway to join in.

We still have a pile of Fireworks going off, tossers.
We had a nice event at the church last night, two dance schools had kids dancing, plus a couple of sing a long sessions I read a poem War Horse by Brenda Williams.

Fear, rippled through the ranks.
Through men's limbs. Into our flanks.
But, steady, courageous, facing battle again.
An awesome silence enveloped them then.

We stamped our hooves. We felt it too.
We spoke as only horses do.
With chinking harness, snort and wicker,
With frightened eyes, and ears a-flicker.

Then "Forward! Forward!" Into battle,
To canon boom and machine gun rattle.
With thundering hooves and shouts and screams
Through blinding smoke to nightmare scenes.

And still we galloped on and on
And still the battle wasn't won.
Through shrapnel, shell holes, rifle fire,
In mindless panic to barbed wire.

Now riderless, I mustered strength
And stretched my jump to its full length
To clear the wire of no-man's lands
And reach the woods in enemy hands.

Stricken with terror, I blundered on
Till the noise of the shelling was long gone.
Past ruined homes and fields of mud.
Past trenches with the stench of blood.

Now alone, I reach a river
And halt beside it, all a-shiver.
I drink its coolness, shake my mane.
Will anything ever be the same?

Where are the bundles of fresh sweet hay?
Where is the straw where I once lay?
Where is the farm where I lived and grew?
Where are the people I loved and knew?

to Brenda Williams
