Falling Flags

Falling Flags

On the battlefield in the woods, cries of wounded
far outweigh the silence of the dead,
who have faced their final fate.
Surviving soldiers have advanced as the sounds
of bullets and pounding shells echo in the distance.
Intense fires ignite the flames of hate, the only
force which keeps the war going,
pitting brother against brother
and family against family.
Fiags fall and they are picked up again,
briefly touching the hallowed ground,
but only for a few moments as the
battle continues until it, somehow, stops.
