And The Fields Burned
It was almost like an extreme confession,
the soldiers fell easily into fatigue
even during the battle,
the summer wore on
and beautiful while the fuse
of human destruction turned,
and the fields burned,
family members at home would fear,
because the atmosphere was tense there,
they had to fight,
there was no choice,
in a toneless voice,
but nevertheless frightened the soldiers,
the word was heard,
Suddenly, the daylight went black.
