My main hobby is miniature wargaming. I attend the Central London Wargames Club which meets in a pub in central London every Monday night (and now also on Thursdays. However,I am only allowed out once a week to play toy soldiers).
Here is a poem, inspired by Seigfried Sassoon’s poem “The General” , which I composed today.
“Good evening there, Andy” the General said
When I met him last night on our way to the pub,
And we carried in holdalls our legions of lead
As we both made our way to the wargaming club
Where we led our lead armies to glory or death
On a 6 x 4 table of green mdf
Against generals called Simon or Alan or Geoff.
