The Angry Staff Officer: Thoughts While Reading World War I Rosters
And so I read, and then remember, for to they who fell this basic courtesy belongs,
That we who serve and for whom they died give life to lives cut short.
In blood and grime and pain they died, in no glory enshrouded moment,
This path for them they did not foresee nor was it one they’d chosen.
All wished to live and love, unwilling they departed,
Souls aflame with hearts afire, for eternity and in this moment.
