Suicide In The Trenches - Poem by Siegfried Sassoon

I knew a simple soldier boy
Who grinned at life in empty joy,
Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
And whistled early with the lark.

In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
He put a bullet through his brain.
No one spoke of him again.

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.

    How sad that we can make light of this poem and the retelling of such tragic events that none of us could ever imagine experiencing. Close your eyes, picture yourself in this accursed trench and try to feel what this young man is feeling. I feel the horror and fear of impending death. Brilliantly expressed by Sassoon.
