    Carcass-strewn battlefield
    Time and dust their only funeral
    Dried blood like scabs on bullet-chipped rocks
    Who can tell them apart from withering flowers of an extinct kind

    What else sways in the gentle wind
    Than a wounded flag with a certain passion
    A sad sight that seemed to reflect
    The unceremonial deaths of those ambitious young

    Their jaded, curled fingers point accusingly
    Their colourless, void eyes look blamingly
    Their new wedding rings, now stained, shine innocently
    Towards a battled cause unrepented

    Though their bodies were mutilated by whistled shells
    Their faces twisted to a ghastly grimace
    And their spirits departed for another world
    Their dreams float in the wind, wherever it blows

    When the fabled flowers dance to the sky-ward breeze
    A comfort to that place of restless souls
    To take our breaths and fill our lungs
    With the flowing scent of reminiscent hopes

    We remember.

      The dead on the battlefield. I like how you looked at it. The first verse stands out to me the most. Time and dust their only funeral.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
