Body Of Bones - Poem by Elizabeth Rebel

Their little bodies, filled with bones
The stiff air, filled with moans
Their little voices cry for might
It never comes into sight

The people watch and wait
Knowing they’re too late
They want the bodies to rest
Because they know it’s for the best

The air is filled with smoke and fire
The ground is coved with muck and mire
Bodies need to be put to rest
It is for the best
