SELVES
Amidst a sea of sand and blood,
the grim reaper has a residence
In his black book, all of their names
Recorded as "Pending"
He is everywhere at once,
in the form of insurgency
In Every Nook and Cranny
And all in the name of protecting your
Country Lovers Family Friends Home
Grandeur was promised, but
you were paid in blood and loss
When the old wage war,
it's the young who die
Their dignitaries laughing
all the way to the bank
Sailors Soldiers Marines Pilots Special Forces Security Contractors Rangers SEALs...
OUR HEROES, THEIR CHESS PIECES
All of you are
EXPENDABLE

    Beautiful piece about the atrocities of war. No compensation is enough for those who've lost families in this war, and wars past.

    Hope to see more of your work soon.
