Ysolde Okumura-jones, Grade 9, St Paul's Grammar School
Where shadows lie, and comrades fall
Watch your back, take up the call
Friends kept close, And enemies closer
A place of death, Where fear will foster
Where humanity is lost, and the beast will form
Where death is strong, and life is gone
A place without peace
A place without freedom
The men who fear it, those who live for it
The people that die for it, those who cheer for it
Where comrades lie, and shadows fall
What nightmares are made of.
This is War.
