The Cannon's Roar

The cannons roar, hatred inflame Destruction, chaos, without shame Our countries fabric torn apart Pride and conviction rule the heart Life as before we can't reclaim Atrocities in freedoms name Negotiations soon became Words meant to stop, but instead start The cannons roar We won't remember them by name Who heard the bugle's call and came They, on the battlefield depart Victims felled by the warriors art The cannons roar

This entry reminds me a bit of Roger Whittaker's hit song "I Don't Believe in it Anymore". You have rendered a fine example of a Rondeau poem.

I read this twice, Bob...not for clarity but to capture the powerful imagery within....And isn't it a shame that man has not realized that war accomplishes no good! Well done! Love, Annalise

Such passion and conviction in your verse. It takes me with you into the agony of what happens on a battlefield. A part of you is in this!

Some of us long remember those we knew who fell on battlefields of yore. Their names live on above the arguments of why we went to war, woven into the fabric of our nation's lore.
