Three Word Wednesday - Remember

Three Word Wednesday - Remember 

Venom, noun: a poisonous substance secreted by animals such as snakes, spiders, and scorpions and typically injected into prey or aggressors by biting or stinging, extreme malice and bitterness shown in someone's attitudes, speech, or actions.

Wiggle, verb: move or cause to move up and down or from side to side with small rapid movements, (wiggle out of) avoid (something), especially by devious means; noun: a wiggling movement.

Distracted, adjective: unable to concentrate because one's mind is preoccupied.


Remember the men
The venom 
The build up to battles
That brought us to the brink
Of pain and suffering
Too hard to bear
Remember the reasons
We went to war
And try to prevent
Any wiggle room
To distraction from
Such evil coming to fruition again
But remember the past
For those who forget the past
Are doomed to repeat it
Remember those who gave their lives
To keep us free
Honour their memories
By living happy free lives
But say a prayer for them
Every once in awhile
And thank them
