APOCALYPSE 1914-18

I have heard the soldiers singing,

Pure young voices strong and true.

I have heard them speak of valour

 Each man the others must outdo.

 

I have watched them march to battle

With final thoughts of home and wives

Realising - for the first time 

They now are fighting for their lives. 

I have seen life standing, leering

While death wielded his bloody knife

Heard Apocalyptic horsemen echoing

Hauntingly through halls of night.

 

I have smelt the devil`s rank breath

Rasping harsh through nostrils flared

His fiendish riders thundering by me

Slaughtering their prey with sabres bared.

 

I have watched the victims stiffen

Petrified by loathsome scenes

Sheering through this realm of terror,

Figments of evil, demented dreams.

I have wept for souls returning,

Floundering relics of mankind

Condemned to a living hell they wander

Seeking a peace they cannot find.

 

And on.… and on…. time after time.
