A century ago, battle was met on this spot

Standard

A century ago, battle was met on this spot
The armies in glory arrayed themselves
Beneath the walls they met and fought

A century from that day, their names are lost
One wonders what they fought for
One wonders was it worth the cost

Nothing lies here on this land
The city’s walls are broken down
All their deeds and bodies are covered by the sand
