The rain stopped
  the sun was gone
 
Mercy was in
  short supply
 
Smoke hung over
  the battlefield
 
A bugler in the mud
  with his cry
 
Bodies were being
  carted off
 
New songs were written
  to the dead
 
Just another day in
  World War 1
 
That started and ended
  in dread

(Villanova Pennsylvania: November, 2014)
