In the Trenches

 I snatched two poppies 
From the parapet’s ledge, 
Two bright red poppies 
That winked on the ledge.
Behind my ear I stuck one through, One blood red poppy I gave to you.
The sandbags narrowed And screwed out our jest, And tore the poppy You had on your breast .
Down - a shell - O! Christ, I am choked .
safe .
dust blind, I See trench floor poppies Strewn.
Smashed you lie.
