Capitulation

Thanks to The Atlantic for the photograph.

these thoughts I write may be my last
the war is here and rising fast
and as i sit in shade and shadow
red winds blow as slaughtered prattle
steps come near to heavy drums
my voice shut tight to claim the dumb
“Worry not” the soldiers say
“Your death is swift by will today
your familes tears wont be recorded”
forgotten I
the lost and sordid
