War will make corpses of us all.

Soft moonlight on icy grounds
caresing the face of the young man
The blood of enemies
cover the sword
A wounded soldier
victorious in flames
Fallen angel in the bloody snow
waiting for his doom

Did he die for nothing?

Sweet song of the wolfs
calling out to the dead
The stars are crying
tears of ice
For the dead angels
shall never fly again
Dead and dying
freeze in the snow

No better quote than Wellington after the battle of Waterloo: '' Only a battle won is as bad as a battle lost''. He said as he looked over the battle field.
Well written well expresst.

Ken D Williams

The brutality of war, so insane. Poets have written about the waste and futility for centuries, and I suppose they always will. Good write.
