Suicide in the Trenches

I knew a simple soldier boyWho grinned at life in empty joy,Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,And whistled early with the lark.

In winter trenches, cowed and glum, With crumps and lice and lack of rum, He put a bullet through his brain. No one spoke of him again.

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye Who cheer when soldier lads march by, Sneak home and pray you'll never know The hell where youth and laughter go.

Siegfried Sassoon (1917)

    • Metaphor - comparisons that show how two things that are not alike in most ways are similar in one important way without using ‘like’ or ‘as’.
    • Personification - giving human traits (qualities, feelings, action, or characteristics) to non-living objects.
    • Alliteration - using the same consonant sound at the beginning of several words in close proximity.
