A GRAVE SCENARIO

What if the solution to war
is locked up in some grave
inside some soldier’s mind,
who died while being brave
while fighting in some battle
he did not bring about,
which kept him far too busy
to let the solution out?
Oh, that would be a hoot
if wars were here to stay
and the answer e’er remains
where worms, in silence, play?
