The Battle of Loos, September 1915
This was the Great War, the War to End Wars,
and when it didn't it became known as World War I.
The poet of empire sang a different tune after
his son John was killed on 27 September 1915.
He was one of 20,000 British soldiers lost in that battle.
If any ask us why we died
Tell them 'Because our fathers lied'.
