Gettysburg

Gettysburg

They lose the wide eyed innocence
As sharp the cannon’s roar
And bloody conflagration
Is placed at nature’s door
The lofty flags of battle
Are ripped to shreds and torn
As youth and all its hopes
Are buried there stillborn
The “glory” that is war
Is shown a fallacy
Whilst men and weapons shriek
As lives no longer be
And when the battle’s over
And the smoke pervades the air
The bodies piled up needlessly
Should make us more aware
