Early Christmas Gift

Sunflowers for the dead, a symbol of life against a tombstone,

 

An early Christmas gift, hopefully they’ll receive it in the afterlife.

 

Considering the state of the world, maybe it’s good that you died,

 

So you don’t have to see, how civilian life became a combat zone.

They certainly make for a stark contrast, the yellow life and the dead grey.

Agreed with Hulls. Pity to see the world right now.
