Who Will Kneel


Wars depend
upon the 
monuments.

The dead remembered
by the survivors
with cemeteries.

Grave stones
and statues
to continue the myths.

Plaques
which declare
victory real or false

The survivors
must label it
a noble cause.

The few
who remain
bury the dead.

Declare
the dead
have not died in vain.

What if
there was no one
left?

Who then 
would kneel
before the monuments?
