Coins on a Gravestone

They dreamt of marching down

with bands and banners,

shouting of their victories.

They sought after the ringing cheers

of when they were to be brought on stage to be heralded with praise

But they heard no trumpets

when they faced death’s army.

No drums could be heard

over the whistling of weapons.

There was no string quartet

to lull them while they laid dying.

Just the silence punctured

by their broken breathing

and the wailing of those

they would leave behind.
