Damage in Somme


A boot stuck
in a soldier's
foot; a helmet
stood two feet
away from its head.

Guns a waste of steel
waiting for recycle.

Tons of bullets heaped
on the ground like fire woods;

The remains held hands shoulder-
high in meditation, were powdered
faces of dead bodies must have been burnt.

    NB: lack of I.Q. is not a joke but pandemic as disease, people need to take necessary precautions as often as they care to wee. In this case Leslie should book himself in for examination. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
