Burdens Of Young Soldiers

In the great hour of destiny they stand
Soldiers as dreamers
Dreaming of things, balls and bats

Going to the office in the train
Strong eyes, fine limbs, haughty atheletes

In all my dreams, before my helpless sight
I saw him drowning in a green sea
His hanging face bitter as cud
With arms outstretched and drooping thorn crowned head

Sprawled in the bowels of the earth
Blind eyes, mangled limbs, darkened brain
