For All You War Heroes…

Reading the right wing freesheets is depressing and makes you lose faith in human nature and humanity, every londoners known that for years.

but

i recently read an article about wooton basset or wherever the dead teenagers come home

“so how do you feel” asks the journalist

“well…. [sniff] all i know is that when our boys come back home [wipes tear] they’re heroes” (god save the queen etc…)

mate,

being a hero has nothing to do with fighting in an illegal war

being dead does not automatically qualify you for that word

being a hero does not involve the last thing you see being the 1 1/2 inches of tongue you involuntarily bit off when the bomb went off under you as your skull crushed

being a hero does not mean second to last thing you see is a pool of your life blood streaming out of your 19 year old broken mouth

being a hero does not mean the last thing you see as it fades to white is your brains pouring out of your nose

how sad

there are real heroes in this world, look them up
