Guest,Julie; I find your posting very hurtful. I just responded to a request from someone else! If you take the trouble to read a few of my posts from elsewhere (the Gitmo thread for instance), you'll find out my view on war, death and poppy fields.

Don't single me out just because I happen to have the words to a song I'll never sing; I've got literally hundreds of songs in my collection, some of them even worse than that one. I didn't write it, I disagree with many of its sentiments and disrespect for the war dead is something that no-one could accuse me of. Your comments should be directed at the author, not me and I find it hurtful that you would direct them so, when it is obvious that you do not know me. If you did know me then you'd know that I have written and sung songs with the opposite viewpoint, made visits to many war sites and war graves - only 2 weeks ago I was at Pegasus Bridge and the Caen Memorial - and that I have relatives who lie in those self same poppy fields or at the bottom of the sea and have no grave.
