My remembrance day Poem

An English Drummer Boy


Bang that drum boy

Bang those drum loud

Make your parents proud

Men go to war to the beating of a drum

This will be the last thing they hear for some

Your time to stand and be counted

As death on a horse fly’s pass ready and mounted


Fear no cannon or musket

To your left

To your right

Lays blood and the bodies paying their debt

Eyes to the front

Shoulders back

Standing so short but so tall

A boy listening to the men as for their mothers they call


Bang that drum boy

Bang those drum loud

For king and country make us all proud

When the fighting is over for ever young you will so well be

On every battle ground from here to eternity

There in the fog of war

An English drummer boy so small standing tall








About darkersideoflight

Hi welcome to my world, I just noticed i have been writing here since 2011. You probably stumbled across me one way or another. I have been writing since the age of sixteen and soon I will be 49. I call my words poetry but i see the words as potential lyric to a song and one day when I have the time and money this is a road i will follow but till then I will be here. Please feel free to contact me if you are a musician or a band looking for a song writer and you feel you could work with me thank you and have good time where ever you may be.
