Dusk Covers WWI Trench

As dusk their line visibly bows Cropped heads beneath mounds fold Glum shadows through addle fields row Listless turrets sprout o'er demarcated woe Sallowed eyes in bleary sockets rolled As dusk their line visibly bows Shocked ears to concussive barrage close As sighs from clogged lungs are paroled Raspy shadows through addle fields row Smoldering smoke in singed heavens glows Vaporous cloud o'er scout binoculars scrolled As dusk their line visibly bows Each rifle into a sterile stack goes Rumbling caissons to dark corners doled Steel shadows through addle fields row The fog of war o'er dazed minds flows An eerie wind curdles each silent mold As dusk their line visibly bows Wispy shadows through addle fields row
