Following on from “Daffodils“, here’s another lovingly crafted example of CVS checkin comment poetry – “Dulce Et Decorum Est“. It’s taken almost exactly a year to do. I chose that poem because it’s a childhood favourite, and a timely reminder of the lies behind gung-ho encouragements to war.
For those who don’t read Latin, “Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori” means “It is good and right to die for your country”.
And I so nearly got it perfectly right, too… spot the deliberate mistake.
