1. Telegrams

A yellow slip of paper,

not a letter or a note

In the summer of 1915,

it wasn't often remote 


"Missing in action since

Two July," a mother would read

and children would cry


Dead, lost, or prisoner of war

Most must have wondered

what they were really fighting for


When holding this telegram,

sent from World War One

I know that with 9 million casualties

no one truly won
