Battlefields

Human remains must surely inhabit

much of what is beneath their surfaces

 

but not

our memories, pities, regrets, stupidities, ignorances, frustrations,

small mindnesses, unwarranted hatreds

 

these factors that go on polluting our minds

brought on by those who make enforcing and warring decisions

on behalf of the innocent masses

in order to impossibly achieve a permanently peaceful world 

no matter how much we wish they could

 

they cannot just be covered up

with the soils and stones of regrown meadows and hillsides

or blanketed over with rejuvenated cropped fields and woodlands

 

not unless that is

all warring decisions are forever buried

with those who otherwise would always be turning

in their disrespected graves.
