Faces I Remember, Faces I Forget


Faces I remember
Faces I forget

In between quenches of unending thirst
In between punches of immense pleasure

Faces I remember
Faces I forget

In between the truce and tragedy of failure
In the midst of meloncholy moods of sorrow

Faces I remember
Faces I forget

Faces brown, faces that frown
Faces made, faces that fade
Faces twinkle, faces that wrinkle
Face fierce, faces that pierce
Faces of hunger, faces that conquer

In a train of thought through memory lanes
Faces that go out of sight

Through the slippery moors of evening silence
Faces that throw eloquence

In a momentary gloom of eternal misery
Faces that get wonderstruck

Faces I remember
Faces I forget

Leftover lanes like chimney stains
Remain to remind the smoke that vanish

Landscapes that minds reign shift
There is no escape from the wind that blows swift......

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
