“Here, where a thousand
Captains swore grand conquest. . .Tall
Grass their monument.”
What does this quote mean to you? To me it portrays deep deep effort that was for nothing. Deep Deep Wasted Effort. Reminds me of Religion. Imagine a Thousand Winning Captains, Each With Thousands of soldiers that died or were maimed, fighting the Thousand losing Captains, Each With Thousands of soldiers that died or were maimed, ALL THAT EFFORT and all they have to show for it is tall grass. So sad. Utter failure. Like religion's feigned attempt to cure poverty!
