War Writing Since 1914 - Poetry Day 6

Just trying to lose 250 words - this time, they won't even allow a 10% margin.  If I can get it done by tonight, it means that I will have a free day tomorrow.  Unfortunately, Hubby has nicked my car, as his is unwell at the moment.  Curses!

I have managed to shed 130 words, but can only really shave a max of a further 22 words off, bringing it down to the 10% margin.  Any less and there won't be much of an essay left! I have emailed her re the 10% either way (according to some, she wasn't keen on the idea), but I will leave this a day or so before having another look.  No more for now.
