In a dessert
Baking in the hot sun
There is a cemetery
No one visits
There are no eulogies
No prayers
No grave markers
Only tanks
As far as the eye
Can see
This tank graveyard
Was left as the
The losing side
The winners
Had no need for
These tanks
Didn’t think to send them back
Dump them on
Their enemy’s door step
So they sit
In their graveyard
A rusting monument
To war
To the victors
To the defeated
To modern warfare
Tossed away like scrap
