Zealots

A carpet of soldiers from last year's campaign
lie dead on the ground -- was their struggle in vain?
Some are still clinging to shiftier limbs
that held a reserve against wintry whims
their curled faded uniforms make them look poor
a sorrowful symptom of weathering war
made worse so because the unfeeling machine
will replace them with troops idealistically green.

Hello there.
Congratulations on surviving the A-Z Challenge! I didn't get to visit your blog during the crazy month of April so I'm popping over today from the Road Trip.
