War has long figures as a theme in poetry; some of the world’s oldest ……… poems are about great armies and heroic battles. War has an adverse impact on the lives of soldiers. Without referring to the action in the war, Michael Mack has brought out the suffering of the soldiers. On the battlefield it is horror and chaos, fear and trauma. The soldiers gradually run out of energy and the battlefield takes its toll sooner or later. The poet says he feels deeply hurt to see the agony of the soldiers on the battlefield. The poem indirectly advises people to shun hatred and warfare.
