After: Gray and Gold by John Rogers Cox, 1943.    

		War roars above
		~ a hemisphere
		gone coal  black, 
		blasted with skin
		~ned  ash,  soot 
		~scores the  sky 
and   rubble roils; blood  can not travel on the
wind.  Lines cross,   posts cross,   peace  cru~
cified.  Food  thought,  wry humor  displayed
in fields  of grain from sea to sea.  Commun~
		nication   cut-off
		deafened by  the
		omnipresent gale.
		Fenced in safety 
		a jest. The gold~
		en fuel, isolation
		will not save us.
		War roars above
		~ a hemisphere 
		gone coal black
		blasted with skin
		~ned ash,  soot
		scores the  sky
		and rubble  roils
		Blood can  not
		travel  the wind.

Ah, to go to war and never be able to return to one's homeland... "and the living just pass by"...I'd like to learn controlled writing like this, with the emotion just as or often more powerful. Thank you, Deb. :-)
