Forgotten wars

Forgotten wars

Nobody cries
over the death
of fallen leaves

Nobody cries
over the death
of those who fall
in distant wars
the innocent cut down
by remote control
Nobody sees their faces
or knows their names
or really cares at all

Nobody cries
over the death
of fallen leaves
knowing that spring
will bring renewal

Nobody cries
over the death
of those who fall
in distant wars
though they are
gone forever
