A Bundle full of Death

By James Bush

War casualties.


For every lie

A bundle full of death

For every hesitation

Another group of hearts stop beating

For every turning away

Another gathering of souls

Tumbles into a pit

For every wrong move

The scythe moves closer

To us

And the ones we love

For every lie

A bundle full of death
