Here lies………..

War
Raw and Bloody
Lives lost
Uselessly in honour
Medals awarded
Telegrams delivered
Mothers crying
Wives weeping
Fathers grieving
Children,
Not understanding
Just seeing flags
and glory
and planes overhead

But war is not glory
War is names,
Carved for eternity;
Into cold hard stone
