WW1 Field doctor

Rats, more mud

Deafening mortar sounds
Ever haunting silence and screaming

Rotting gangrenous smells luring the grim reaper in
a toxic cocktail of fading hope 

Dreams of England's green and pleasant land
Farmers, bank clerks doing their duty

Butchers trusted to use their skills to scythe the fetid limbs
