Remembrance - Poem by Doom and Gloom

I gazed upon this lifeless wretch
Through watered eyes and gagging stench
Amidst the bodies of his friends
Left bloodied, broken in a trench
I gazed upon this murdered man
Left to rot inside a ditch
Far from home in foreign lands
Where buzzard’s craw and bodies twitch
I gazed upon this scene from hell
The corpses floating in the mud
A tragic tale for me to tell
Scribed in my dear comrades blood

    If you break faith with us who die
    we shall not sleep
    though poppies grow in Flanders fields........thoughtful write.....John

    My heart is heavy with sadness, i could cry. We have to do something to make this world a beautiful place to live in. Your poem clearly depicts cruelty of some people, and it should be the opposite, Kindness! .How i am touched by are very talented, and for this, i salute you! Your poems are simple, and i love the way you present it..You deserve a warm applause! (Report)Reply

    Sounds very personal and almost beyond comment but it needs telling
    and you have done it very well. I like your work. All the best David
