A E (Alfred Edward) Housman (1859 - 1936) poet and classical scholar wrote several poems during the first world war. This one written in 1914 elequently and concisely spells out the tragedy of young men cut down before their time in WW1.

Here Dead We Lie
Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.
Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.
We have been over this matter a couple of times already, Jim. I personally believe you do not participate in this group, except to spam it. I would appreciate it if you would cease and desist.
Furthermore, I am unclear how you can claim a copyright on someone else's poem. Please make your case or go away. Better yet, just go away.
