Long Lived the Queen

The Victoria Cross 
is mostly given
to heroes of the moment

How much courage
does it take to carry a comrade 
through fire on your back

How much courage
does it take to carry a country
seventy years

How much to carry
how many countries more

Let's give a VC this time
to a hero of a lifetime

All living recipients of The Victoria Cross and the George Cross have been invited to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral taking place today
