An Image of War World I

Wed, 06/27/2018 - 21:00 -- Xylnac

Wake up!

Can you see?

They're falling down on their knees,

Lying on the ground with blood falling down their cheeks.


Listen up!

Are you deaf?

From a distance, you can hear them.

Soldiers yelling in miserable pain

On the land they called, “No Man’s land."


Cover up!

Did you inhale it?

It kills upon inhalation or contact,

Make sure your mask is secured

Or else it will burn.

They called it, “Chemical warfare.”


Look away!

Get up!

Run away!

World War I has just begun.
