Inspired by a visit to a WWI Battlefield

Arras, 1962

The blood of slain soldiers
Runs upon green fields
Death stretching out forever
Where is the glory

Their heroes are made
In forgotten sewers
Through the slaughter-offering
Of their life blood

The modern-day Baals
Bellowed for sacrifice
And the flower of their youth
Passed through the fire
