help! i am far away

they were round a midnight campfire,
when they heard the news.
the sugared haze of chargrilled mallow
mingled with the irish blues.
their hands were clasped around the flames
to welcome woodland souls,
the shade of cities faraway
the ring of unity controls.
no-one moved from forest spot
or blinked in reaper’s glare,
yet years ahead, though they knew not
their peaceful presence lingered there.
