Voting for War by Rob Cullen

I am not a silent poet

So they’ve voted for our safety and to go to war
and the dead are walking the land once more
and the dead are standing again at the door
standing there, looking, waiting once more
they were the ones who went out to the war
now they are standing waiting for the ones
who are going where they’d been once before,
waiting, waiting for the dead to return once more.
and the dead are standing again at the door
standing there, looking, waiting once more.
