Ronovan writes #Decima prompt #68 #Victory in defeat.

We turn toward the beach once more

and staring through the smoke-filled air

see hordes of figures standing there

too tired even to implore

us to remove them from this shore

when at the start of this new day

our boats appeared across the bay

faced by such a desolate scene

from the hell through which they’ve been

the saviours for whom each did pray.
