no bugles for the buried unknowns

are held for masses
who were brave

though some are still
resting in unmarked graves

no masses
no bugles
or any marks of the masses
who lay unknown
under ruins overgrown

be it children
under schoolyards
or a house in Tuam
they too were fighting*
like the soldiers in Guam
they had no might
were considered blight
existence not right
so were made out-of-sight
