We are reminded today
That the science of glory
Is a reaction of aqueous lies and solid greed,

Catalysed by the blood of young people,
Forged in an opaque crucible made of the expansive alloy of
Horror, betrayal and othering;

And the end product is a tin-plated glory,
Brittle...evaporating when exposed to truth’s damning rays….
The by-product, a volatile mix of regrets and broken spirits.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
