The End

There under the spreading oakscivil war

Midst the pine needles

Of the forest nearby

Lay the fallen

The victims of the Confederacy

Many markers unnamed


Men who had given their all

Men who had not survived

The hospital nearby

Serving the Mississippi

And Alabama militias

Overwhelmed by the odds

Of battle

Without recourse

At the end

And now o’er seen

By these mighty old oaks

My coming is too late

My knowing is not

Please, please

Never again.
