A Poem After War
    Back
    They ask me where I've been,
    And what I've done and seen.
    But what can I reply
    Who know it wasn't I,
    But someone just like me,
    Who went across the sea
    And with my head and hands
    Killed men in foreign lands...
    Though I must bear the blame,
    Because he bore my name.

Wilfred Gibson (1878-1962)
