Advancing In Ranks Of Devon Horses


wheat
seed brushed past
born rises

on life breeze
advancing in ranks
of Devon horses our horses

sabres flash point
out foreign death waiting
hunger hidden at firing lines

horse hooves
strike stride stride
splatter splatter splattering

screams in surge wind
shed death throes
stake hearts fear bitten

ploughboys
stripped
of horses

ploughboys
stripped
of dead horses

dying
as we go dying
in charging rows

machine gunned
monstrous
mechanical murders

chatter chatter
chatter disintegrating
flesh mutters

hear the rounds
hear the rounds
hear the rounds

strike home
strike home breaking
muscles bones

uniform vests
sprout bloom red
crimson flowers

expectations
run rampant hawks
consume doves

in dirt bursts
youth bleeding
rich blood red roses

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
