    1. Thanks John, I worked very hard at this one so I appreciate that, I also believe it all to be true, unlike the lies they feed us!!! The images ar all my own, some family stuff from WW1, the youngest lady is my Irish Grandmother

  1. sadness lies in how often we forget….true that…they may lie…but it’s up to us if we believe or what we do with it….enjoyed listening to your poem kevin

    1. http://wp.me/p1x8WB-1F will take you to the written version. Yes, I had noticed how you presented a link from the written to the spoken and I confess I was intrigued by that. Food for thought there for the future, ps nice to meet you and your work, Kevin

  2. thankyou !! poetically …I love the rhythm of the lines and the repetition…great …but of course more than that…being Irish myself…the agony that whether north or south and whichever foot you kick with…they always lie to us!! Great Kevin.

  3. nice…particularly that last stanza…that the sadness lies in us always believing…and forgetting they always lie to us…you really work that repetition well in this one kevin…and you have an easy voice to listen to as well…smiles.

  4. I really enjoyed the combination of audio and visual mediums. You have a great reading voice: clear with a beautiful accent. The theme brought thoughts to mind of Orwell’s newspeak and airstrip one.
