Rivers of blood
flowing in an ichor sea.
Its denizens die.
Sacrifice.
For the greater good.

Cigarettes lit
under the fog of Cordite.
Death is close, always close.
Eternity and sacrifice.
For the greater good.

Death of comrades.
Death of friends.
A life back home
where death is not as common.
Sacrifice.
For the greater good.

Dying is more natural than killing.
Innocence stripped.
Guilt and fear inhabit dreams.
Another sacrifice.
For the greater good.

For those that died.
For those that killed.
For those that sacrificed for the greater good,
Thank you.

I've been asked more than once what inspired this piece. My Grandfather used to talk at length about WW2(except the camps. He wouldn't go into any more detail than that they existed.) It always fascinated me. I wrote this for him back in '99(found it in a box). He passed in '01.

Beautiful intrepid.

A fitting tribute to your grandfather and all who served.
