Recoil’s recollections

This verse was read out at the Limbang Reunion Manchester 2002.
It was chosen instead of the usual Lawrence Binyon poem.

Recoil’s recollections

The recoil’s still felt in the shoulder
Of an old man who once aimed a gun.
A picture now stands on a mantle
Of a young man who’s someone’s dead son.
One of them lived to grow older;
Now the other’s eternally young.
