What is War?

It could be the soldier’s helmet, his uniform, cold muddy and torn

The battlefield ,trench is all reality, another black deadly morn

?

It could be artillery sounds and thick smoke covering the sky

An enemy’s sneak attack is a young man’s horrible cry

?

A blood stained prayer book had been found by a soldier’s side

He hoped this would soon end, let peace be the only guide

?

War could be the wretched sight, smell of dead bodies so near

Their tired, scared brothers, "Oh, this is hell, no man should be here!"

?

Yes, it’s these reminders and a poppy to show so much more

Many families, a lasting sorrow for the soldier isn’t there at the door

War is killing, War is death, War should never be

In honour of Remembrance Day, November 11, 2009
