Life in a trench

Posted: June 5, 2010 in Uncategorized
the deafening noise of military barrage
masks the shouts of the captain
as he yells,
“OVER THE TOP!”
Men run up into no mans land,
clutching their rifles in fear
and then,
one by one,
they are shot down from the enemy trenches.
Many men aere stationed
at the heavy machine guns
firing away,
killing men in No Man’s Land.
The befallen lay sprawled in the mud,
surrounded by barbed wire,
soon to be forgotten when the living soldiers realize the rats have eaten their diner again.
At least they wont be affected
by the poision gas
that is soon to come.
