FIELDS OF OCCISION

Our youths’ dreams
have turned to nightmares
… it seems
and now lay in disarray
upon the bloody
Fields Of Occision
along with echoes
of grief stricken mothers’ screams
… background music
to their now tortured dreams
When… when shall the Field
be silent… in peace
perhaps when the casualties
of their brothers cease…
