Another War


Amid the roar, the bangs and the screams
Men cower in fear, resigned to die
It is so the commanders’ dream
Following orders to go forth and fight
Sodden, flea infested trenches
affords no chance of flight
hearing your comrades’ screams and pleas for help
ducking, dodging shrapnel hoping to survive yourself
as all wars before and to come
the futility is bourne by the pawn that are the front line
to fight and die..time after time.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
