The price of Victory

Coming Home


Such is the plight of all
Who answer to the nations call
Some survive but many fall
Wrapped within a funeral caul


Those returning cast aside
Ridiculed no place to hide
Homeless, stripped of their pride.
Wishing it was them who died


The battlefield, forgotten name
Upon their backs society's shame
Regret the day they homeward came
No Parade or Victory fame.


If you see them lying in the street
Don't hurry by by with rushing feet
Extend your hand with friendship greet
And say well met and merry meet.


Robin. A Spicer (c) 28/02/2006

"Coming Home"... It is a glowing page of humanity showing the indifference of our system... A sublime poetic task duly accomplished.

I salute You, Poet.

In admiration,



Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU
Reviewed by Mary Quire 2/28/2007
This is a truly beautiful work. No one knows their sacrifice, for it extends far beyond their country's service.
