The Mighty Poem

A wonderful poem written by one of our lovely children, Jacob, inspired by War Horse by Michael Morpugo

The Mighty Poem

 

My horse Joey

 

Brave and strong

 

Faces battle all night long

 

Bangs, explosions, gas and smoke

 

Damp and muddy on he goes

 

Pulling bodies from the trench

 

Cannot shift eternal stench

 

Endless trauma, no relief

 

No wonder we can get no sleep

 

My horse Joey

 

Brave and Strong

 

16 million men are gone

 

My horse Joey

 

Brave and strong

 

8 million horses 

 

Brave and gone
