GREAT MONUMENTS

each time I see
one of those great
monuments
standing
proud and tall,
I wonder:

how much blood
did this one cost
to build?

how many lives lost?

O' great monument!
O' great monument!
how much blood?
how much blood?


                                                                                                             
Do not applaud me. It is not I who speaks to you, but history which speaks through my mouth.
