Remy Speaks

Remy speaks of Teddy,
Their glorious charge up San Juan Hill.
That battle lost a century ago.

Teddy is long dead.
It sounds so real,

yet

Remy sees all
on the perpetual TV
In his head.



This weekend we're asking for exactly 33 of your own words plus the following three words:
  • charge
  • century
  • lost
So 33 of yours plus 3 of ours means that everyone will have a 36 word response this time around.

  10. The individual perspective, and the 'perpetual TV in his head' made this a very touching piece.

  12. It's certainly compelling, memory as TV loop. Poor Remy though. Great post.
