Dulce et Decorum est Wilfred Owen
Bent double, like old beggars under sacks, Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge, Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs, And toward our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Mnay had lost their boots, But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame, all blind; Drunk with fatigue;deaf even to the hoots Of tired, out-stripped 5-9s that dropped behind.
Gas ! GAS ! Quick, boys – An ecstasy of fumbling Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time, But someone still was tyelling out and stumbling And flound’ring like a man in fire or lime.
Dim through the misty panes and thick green light, As under a green sea I saw him drowning. In all my dreams before my helpless sight He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.
If in some smothering dreams, you too could pace Behind the wagon that we flung him in, And watch the white eyes writhing in his face, His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin,
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs Bitter as the cud Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old lie : Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori.
