Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

Written after Gifted and Talented School trip to the Somme and Ypres.

Barbed wire
Like cutting claws
A roaring fire
As shrapnel falls
The wounded scream
As larks fly
Like a dream
As we try
To end this war
As we we’re told
“It’s the law.”
It’s getting old
Kill or be killed is the battle cry
Squeeze the trigger, don’t blink an eye
