I Can’t Recall

Was there a reason for our sacrifice,
a reason for this war,
did we help the soul and sum of Man,
or have we only left bodies
battered and bruised and
as old as they will ever be,
did we make craters of cities and
believe ourselves justified?
did we tread on screaming faces
and think ourselves liberators?
Was there a reason this was done,
now or in the past –
is there a reason it will be done again?
