Revolting…..all the fanfare for “The Queen” surveying the handiwork of WW1
I understand the “Poppy” symbolism as popularly supposed.
However I cannot help my visceral reaction of revulsion to seeing that horrid bloody picture of them surrounding that cruel Tower of London.
To my mind it is a tribute to the powers of the world to kill, cripple, and enslave individual humans.
I do not see any sympathy for those represented by those cold red ceramic false flowers.
Rather I see the enshrinement of world governments’ “right of rule” over earth.
Yes, that is what this little human being sees in this gross display.
