So it had come to this Death, at a bullets hiss Hot shrapnel from o'er head More brave boys joined the dead. Eager, so full of pride On the barbed wire they died In their droves young men fell Damn the cause... war is hell. Entry for Alexandrine - Modified Poetry Contest Sponsored by Dear Heart 11/3/2020. Placed =1st.
