A Grave Ending (1914)



They cast away the iron,

not long after it was laid.

She had insisted,

to set an example,

as you were Justice of the Peace.


Your son never returned home,

his life melted away.

There was no peace or justice anymore.

She showed her metal,

railing at the futilities of war.
