So, 75 years ago today it was Victory in Europe day, V.E day. That’s a fact.
The war in the far east rattled on for a few more months, but the war in Europe was finally over and peace was restored.
Seeing the crowds gathering in the streets to celebrate the end of a long and desperate war must have been a sight to behold.
To celebrate I have recorded new versions of two wartime classics.
FOWC with Fandango — Fact
This poem was written for the Tuesday Writing Prompt for the Go Dog Go Cafe, see the post here:

Droplets fall from sunken eyes,
Tears shed by shadows left behind
Bodies lying bitten by flies,
Broken children of humankind.
The consequences when a peace deal dies,
The scourge of War with victory blind.
