Nothing “sweet and fitting” about it...
“...you would not tell with such high zestAnother Memorial Day, and still we are in Iraq with no end in sight. When will we ever learn?
To children ardent for some desperate glory
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.”
* from “Dulce Et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen, 1918
** “Sweet and fitting it is to die for one’s country.” Horace, Odes III.ii.13
