Daddy's gone.

Except I don't quite know where.

He went away to play something called war.

It must have been pretty fun,

Because now he's never coming home.

Mommy says he lost the game,

And was sent to someplace called heaven.

I wonder if he'll play more war there.

When I ask Mommy, all she does is cry.

She misses him, I miss him,

This war must be a very fun game,

To keep him from us.

This was part of three poems I wrote for my school remembrance day ceremony. The series was called Perspectives.
