"Come On Come Back" - Stevie Smith

Incident in a future war

.

Left by the ebbing tide of battle

On the field of Austerlitz

The girl soldier Vaudevue sits

Her fingers tap the ground, she is alone.

At midnight in the moonlight she is sitting alone on a round flat stone.

.

Graded by the Memel Conference first

Of all human exterminators

M.L.5.

Has left her just alive

Only her memory is dead forever more.

She fears and cries, Ah me why am I here?

Sitting alone on a round flat stone on a hummock there.

.

Rising ,staggering, over the ground she goes

Over the seeming miles of rutted meadow

To the margin of a lake

The sand beneath her feet

Is cold and damp and firm to the waves' beat.
