The Great War

I am a storyteller
Yet I cannot see very well
For my eyes betray me 
With images of no man's land
For I am no veteran 
As I have not seen what they have 
Yet it's as if I've been there
Every step of the way
For my ears ring with shell shock 
And my feet drag with mud
For which I hope 
To you all
That none of you follow me 
Through this Great War
