A Zoolon aside: In 55 BC Julius Caesar and his Roman army turned up in Dover ready to invade Britain. However, Caesar overlooked the cliffs from which the locals were lobbing giant boulders down at him. Thinking to himself, ‘I don’t need this’ and without a Plan B he gave the invasion a miss. Yet a year later in 54 BC he solved the problem by landing at a sandy beach up the coast – the rest is straight roads and history.
A day in the death of the soldier
A dream in the life of the child
Maybe, before the war he should have told her
Only the winners run wild
The water mirror meets reality
Listen to the west wind serenade you
From the east you’ll hear a symphony
Big man’s deaf ears are out to betray you
To the percussion of the battlefield timpani
Tomorrow is another day
A day in the lost life of the unnamed soldier
A nightmare for the fatherless child
Sad days as you never got to hold her
Hold your breath, only the winners run wild
Only the Winners Run Wild
