There they lie
Torn and tattered
Blown to pieces, like the ground of the terrain where they rest, where blood splattered,
Never found, never uncovered.
Their bones one of millions, piled in those fields
Overgrown by poppies and never revealed
And as the earth reclaims what once was there
May we once understand that war is never fair
Dylan Year 9
