Abattoir


I look up at night,
the stars and moon in sight.
I get to thinking,
the tears start streaming;
Such desire to drift away.

Hey! Look at the lightning!
Can you hear the thunder?
The sky is brightening.
The sun reveals the plunder.

Once a beautiful home,
transformed into a slaughter house.
Such death has caused my poem.
Such death brought by Deception's spouse.

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
