Somme Place


Utter desolation

The result of war and trepidation

Where so many were slain

And survivors

Left to cry and pray

All that remains

Of the millions who died that fateful day

Are broken trees

Swaying pitifully in the breeze

The bodies of brave soldiers are long gone

But the sadness lives on

In this barren wasteland of a place

Where the Battle of Somme once took place
