The Fallen Gaul

Under
The tree,
The fallen
img_1066_400Gaul on
Bloodied
Knees;
Plumes
Of black
Smoke
Pour into
The sea,
That licks
And flicks
At the
Twisted
Steel.

In the
Sacked
Cities,in
The packed
Cities.

Under the
Tree, the
Fallen
Gaul,the
Sword or
The wheel;
The twisted
Steel,as cars
Race on the
Champs-Élysées.

Hear
The crash
And the din,
The moan and
The groan.

In the
Sacked
Cities,in
The packed
Cities.


Then,
Under
The
Tree,
Flowers
Are laid
For the
Fallen
Gaul.

In the
Sacked
Cities,in
The packed
Cities.
