Those now in power today are heralds - heralding in
Events political national and international
Courses me to think
Have we entered a new dark age?
Not seen for decades
Weren't we not supposed to have have learned from
The past history?
To time when millions died in European wars
And across the world wars - genocide
Peoples of faith diffarant identity ethnicity
Sexuality preferences - perished - in camps

The Dark Ages of The Twentieth Century

In Ramsgate local municipal cemetery
Two sections one World One - Canadians lay
A solitary Australian also lays - William 'Bill' Blower by name

The other World War Two dead lay
In the World War Two sections lays the graves of British pilots
Laying beside German pilots all killed in the Second World War
In another grave lays a Dutch seaman - Frederik Hendrik Wiegert Rijkers
who died enduring that war
Will a New Section be needed?
Are we heading for a new even darker age?
