This is perfection and the photo is amazing. "Peace is but a false dawn..." It certainly seems so.
"When will they ever learn, oh when will they ever learn?"
I'm not sure humans ever will. There's always been a "reason" for as long as time has been.
Perfectly appropriate levels of anger and resignation. A good write for a day such as this.
Glad I saved reading your poem for today ... watching our Veteran's Day parade this morning left me with tons of thoughts, emotions. Vietnam destroyed our family.
Really interesting photo, and your poem is a perfect companion.
I cannot fathom why humans cause other humans so much suffering.
The image of that bugle call have me goosebumps. Nice way to bring sound into the poem.
