Last Gasp

Death is but a brief moment

In life

 

Wasted moments

Multiply

Beyond control

And he is left

In an emotional quiz

That has him asking, begging

To know

It’s meaning

 

It’s lost on us

This beauty, this wonder

 

It’s war –

Flaming words

Wielding indiscriminately

Cutting every man’s heart

Leaving the wounded

Screaming on the battlefield

For mercy

That is not to be found

 

In time
