Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori - it is sweet and right to die for your country.
That's what they tell us. That's what we convince ourselves is true. As we march, the faces of fear stand out... Boys of 12. Sons of merchants and bakers. Untrained commoners who have never held a spear or sword in their life. The smell of blood lingers in the air, and like a harsh truth, we try to swallow it down with our tears and pretend we-... sorry, being dressed like a Roman soldier got me carried away with war 😂 my mum would NEVER let me go. I'd be locked away in some cellar for the rest of my days before I'd be allowed to wield a sword! 😭 Probably for the best though, I'm very much not a warrior, even though I love being covered in dirt and my ass looks A-MAH-ZING in a tunic.
For real though; should I go off to war, I leave my quirky shirts, Morrisons clubcard and Pokémon dolls to my housemates, my £57.36 inheritance and my Adam Sandler DVDs to my family, and my PlayStation 4 to the sexiest person I know.
