At Land’s End

The sun sinks low on Cornwall’s cape
The shadows shift and change their shape
Then stealing up the rocky shore –
What might the nighttime have in store?

Now far away ‘neath darker skies
A parent weeps – a baby dies
The unrelenting ursine plan
Of inhumanity to man

All those whose bombs wreak such despair
All those who kill with ne’er a care
Believe me when I say it’s true
There’ll be no victory for you

For if with tanks and guns you chose
To fight a war – you’ll surely lose
The weak who hate are not the kind
To find that love wins heart and mind

Take Mariupol, Odessa, Kyiv
Your aims you still will not achieve
As shadows shrink and sun ascends
We’ll see that this land never ends.

Nothing particularly interesting to say other than I'm a GP with an interest in emotional well-being, an avid Somerset County Cricket Club supporter and a poor example of a Christian who likes to put finger to keyboard from time to time and who is foolish enough to think that someone out there may be interested enough to read what I've written. Some of these blogs have grown over time and some portions of earlier blogs reappear in slightly different forms in later blogs. Apologies for the repetition. What I have posted today (6th August 2018) consists of what I have written over the last few years - whether I write anything ever again, only time will tell.
