Conscripts


Conscripted, massed
To another's cause
Sent off to fight
Another's wars
Confronting conscripts
Of other races
Sent to die
In obscure places
When enough blood
Has been shed
When enough bodies
Are wounded or dead
The politicians will talk
The bereaved  will weep
The survivor struggle
In tormented sleep.
