~Sand Box Hero~
© r. meuser
Face down in sand
Covered in dust
shreds of flesh
in a bloody crust
Chest split open
by shrapnel sharp
it cut him deep
pierced his heart
On his face
a lifeless stair
A grenade had hit
no life did spare
Rifle in death drip
ready to fight
lay still and silent
on this flare lit night
Hopes and dreams
of this humanity
by war’s insanity
With no regrets
he never thought twice
freedom was purchased
he paid the price
The spoken word is for those close enough to hear.
The printed word is for the world to read.
