Heroic Victims

She sent him off to war

Her husband, lover, friend

To topple empires and

Destroy kaisers and czars

It was the Great War

The war to end all wars

they sent him back a child

Gassed in the trenches

With only simple thoughts

left in his head

For the rest of their lives

She cared for him

Like a mother

(remembering my aunt & uncle)
