No Poppies Here

Into Battle, Museu de les Ciències, Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, Valencia, Spain
They marched row by row
Trained not to question orders
Immunized murder

Their glory assured
Set against their own int’rests
Willing sacrifice

War’s wretched slaughter
For lambs sent into mayhem
Fear held in dead eyes

Remains laid to ground
With white crosses row on row
Power’s martyred souls

On the March
Museu de les Ciències
