Wars Last Stand

The rust runs off red

Machinery froze

Black fluids bled

Collecting the dead

Sun’s bleach expose

The rust runs off red

Flame not right yet

Bodies decompose

Black fluids bled

Bound and broken treads

Rendering of foes

The rust runs off red

Bloated children fed

Torn pennant blows

Black fluids bled

Grinding bones for bread

Stark machines pose

The rust runs off red

Black fluids bled
