Victories Retain The Stench of Death

Victories retain the stench of death.
Each is cause for gratitude, not joy.
Those who win are fated to destroy
Every grace whose burning gives them breath.
Remember those who fell on every side,
And grieve not just for those you call your own.
No torturer or tyrant dies alone;
So may you weep for every fratricide.
Death is no fit dwelling place for pride,
And hatred's not a passion to enjoy,
Yet all who feel have reason to atone.

Voices Of The Dead Are Rarely Heard
Voices of the dead are rarely heard.Each of us should set aside the timeTo listen to their lost and anguished word,Empty of all sense save the sublime.Reason cannot reason to an end,A moment of its own annihilation.Nor can one love or witness comprehend'Ere death reveals their unconcealed relation.So let us long remember those who died,Doing honor due, for they were lovedAlive and dead by those whose hearts abide,Yet yearning though the mountains be unmoved.
