Thought I’d given a poem a try. I know it’s the 21st century and you can’t say anything anymore but whatever.
I’ve never thrown myself on a hand grenade to protect my fellow team,
Nor charged into enemy fire as my dying friends all scream.
I’ve never transplanted organs to keep a terminal child alive,
Or worked around the contagious not knowing if I’d survive.
I’ve never put my life in danger whilst trying to rescue another,
Made history as a famous first with worldwide media cover,
The funny thing is those receiving knighthoods do not either,
In these days awful luvvies and MPs are the receivers.
