POPPY POWER

Where does it come from
What does it do
A red poppy flower
A symbol of hope
A signal of power

Remember,remember
What they have done
A massacre ordered
But what have they won
Respect and valour from no one

Sixty years,no lessons learned
And still the young boys
Are sent out to test
The new lethal toys
Those left alive always the best

A pawn to a king
A bow to a queen
Another red reef
A sign of their grief
Poppy power beyond belief

Opium wars with
No time for pause
Another young sacrifice
To justify the cause
The power of the poppy flower
