A LAND FIT FOR HEROES! (ww1)

Lloyd George, promised, as - A land fit for heroes! what a joke!
I'd been at Yippers, (Passchendaele) - The Somme -The Dardanelles (Gallipoli) - Marne
Mones, Ares - and the so many other killing fields -
On and under the seas of death!
In our HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS - KILLED - THREE FOUR TIMES MORE
ARMLES - LEGLESS - BLINDED - DEAF - THE STRUCK DUMB - MINDS FOOKED UP!
MEN - YOUNG MEN - WITH NO COCK AND NO BALLS - SHOT OF
YET A LIVE - YET NOT LIVING!
NOT A FEW - WITH NO FACES - SCOOPED OFF LIKE BUTTER!

Lloyd George* - made a made a speech - I read it The Daly Lier - as we Tommy's
Called The Daly Mail!

That he maid in Parleymant: WE WILL BUILD A LAND FIT FORE HEROES!
TOO RETURN TOO!

WHAT A LOAD OF BOLLOX!

We came back to wages reduced, unemplymant! Life - liveing - exsiting -
On the - FOOKING DOLE! - HUNGER!

WHAT WERE THE POINT OF THAT WAR!

JUST BOLLOX - ALL OF IT!

*Britsh Prime Minster During most of World War One
