Who Will Kneel

Wars depend
upon the 

The dead remembered
by the survivors
with cemeteries.

Grave stones
and statues
to continue the myths.

which declare
victory real or false

The survivors
must label it
a noble cause.

The few
who remain
bury the dead.

the dead
have not died in vain.

What if
there was no one

Who then 
would kneel
before the monuments?
