English.png English text

Let me work.
Pile the bodies
Let high
at Austerlitz
and Waterloo
Shovel them under
and let me work
and pile them high.
I am the grass
at Gettysburg,
I cover all.
And pile them high
at Ypres and Verdun.
Shovel them under
and let me work.
Two years, ten years
and passengers
ask the conductor:
What place is this?
Where are we now?
Let me work.
I am the grass.
