Killing Fields


The fighting is over, the battle is won
Overhead the crows are gathering
The dead lay like a grisly carpet

    Watch grammar and punctuation, but apart from that it's a very vivid and compelling read. I particularly like the last line. Thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply

    An excellent and potent write. In war there are really no winners.
    Even the crows and eventually the buzzards are the ultimate
    victors. There can never be any joy and if there is it is short
    lived. make peace and not war. very inspiring. (Report) Reply

    What a great way to get us to see the way of wars. that crows are the winner. however. it is sad that wars are necessary.: (. even animals and all the earth hates war. but we must. because of the enemy. (Report) Reply

    Your depth of wisdom here is amazing, in that you have painted such a clear picture of who the real winners are in a battle, the crows. The contrast of the pain of those left dying and the victory celebration is just great. A MAJOR 10 from me! (Report) Reply

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
