Den eneste, der slap igennem

I am the only one that got through
The others died where ever they fell
It was an ambush
They came up from all sides
Give your leaders each a gun and then let them fight it out themselves
I’ve seen devils coming up from the ground
I’ve seen hell upon this earth
The next will be chemical but they will never learn

Ikke et digt, men hvad Harry Patch, den sidste overlevende britiske soldat fra Første Verdenskrig havde at sige om slaget ved Passchendaele i 1917, da han blev interviewet i 2005.

Jeg lytter til Radiohead lige nu, og deres gribende sang “In Memory Of Harry Patch” har netop denne tekst. Hør sangen her eller køb den her.

Harry Patch døde i 2009, 111 år og 38 dage gammel.
