Narrative Poetry: War has Changed by Luke Vaughan November 2016

War has Changed   

by Luke Vaughan 5th Class


War has changed.

Man after man falls to the ground.

It’s nothing like the stories I have heard.


Dawn and dusk,

I hear the loud patter of machine guns

Ripping men apart.


They say you’ll be back before the leaves fall,

But some men won’t make it back at all.

I am afraid

For myself,

My wife and infant son.


I am afraid I won’t make it back

For Fall.
