There Will Be Blood

Sets of fearful eyes leveled above the trenches
look out; the fallen bodies fill the vast valley,
even birds refuse to speak.

Many men passed over
peace only came to those hit
led here by the kings
pawns in the war for foreign dirt.

This act of man will not go unpunished
those in the fields will no longer
age when the sun comes.

The cards were dealt
falling where they may,
only the ones left with lively eyes
can see the red.
