Because your lover threw wild hands toward the sky

And the affrighted steed ran on alone, Do not weep. War is kind. Hoarse, booming drums of the regiment Little souls who thirst for fight, These men were born to drill and die The unexplained glory flies above them Great is the battle-god, great, and his kingdom A field where a thousand corpses lie. Do not weep, babe, for war is kind.

Because your father tumbled in the yellow trenches, Raged at his breast, gulped and died, Do not weep. War is kind. Swift, blazing flag of the regiment Eagle with crest of red and gold, These men were born to drill and die

Point for them the virtue of slaughter Make plain to them the excellence of killing And a field where a thousand corpses lie. Mother whose heart hung humble as a button On the bright splendid shroud of your son, Do not weep. video War is kind.

group, work on the after-reading questions. Once the group is done reading, complete the after-reading questions together (or compare your answers). (If there are issues with people talking when its supposed to be quiet, or letting the others in the group do all the work, you will do this on your own) Group Checklist:

Reading questions Paragraph describing setting, 2 examples of imagery Character web for chosen character Character analysis paragraph

Plot chart for story, at least 5 events Presentation chart (organizing basic details, 6 word summary) Visual for story (can show setting, characters, include words, explain irony, etc) Group presentation: Describe setting, characters, main events, why story is ironic, show and explain visual.
