Unhallowed Ground

they came one upon another
lost sheep out of the meadow
stumbling,falling row after row
slow tired bodies,men,women__a child cries out
alone in the twilight
moans pierce the the heavy smoke filled air
burning hot over dim shadows
they went to meet death
each on his own terms__silently
later,whispers came
as the moon rose to trespass
on unhallowed ground
