To End All Wars

'To end all wars' is what they said,
The price in blood that millions shed,
With bombs and bullets, gas and wire,
By guns that scorched the earth with fire

A hundred years of war we've had,
In Kabul and Derry, Malaya, Baghdad,
For king and country, in tears and sweat,
For an empire on which the sun had set

A hundred corners of a hundred fields,
Scars that time will never heal,
Children orphaned, women maimed,
By bombs we've dropped in freedom's name.
