These Are The Men Whose Minds The Dead Have Ravished

The guns rattled again

Their repetitive ramble mixed

With the screams of the wounded

A soldier’s lullaby

Another enemy shot down

But he felt no pride

Neither did he feel any sorrow

He felt nothing and that was terrifying

The constant noise has muted his hears

The repetitive cries have muted his soul

He nothing but a shell of a man

He’s nothing but a ghoul

These Are The Men Whose Minds The Dead Have Ravished


Inspired by Wilfred Owen’s Mental Cases
