Daniel Pontius

What to say about walking arm in arm?

I’ve been reading Max Egremont’s biography: “Siegfried Sassoon A Life” and one sees that history does indeed repeat itself. In a chapter from the bio called The heroics of pacifism is a stanza from his poem titled ‘To Any Dead Officer’:

Somehow I always thought you’d get done in,
Because you were so desperate keen to live:
You were all out to try and save your skin,
Well knowing how much the world had got to give.
