War

The room reaking with smoke, as the air Hangs grey. 
They fight for the country, but the country is not there. 
The voices suppressed in the night.

Mothers, Fathers, Sons and Daughters

One says yes ! 
The other says no ! 
Well then it's war, to the battlefields we go.

Thousands may die, a sacrifice to your pride. 
Bodies rotting in the sun. 
Worms through the carcass they will run.

Mothers, Fathers, Sons and Daughters

Blood cakes killing a young ones dreams. 
The flies festering in the wounds. 
He was scarcely from his Mother's womb.

Gareth, this last verse is so graphic! It makes a screaming statement that caps the whole poem with the horrors of war.
