Extract from 'On Passing the New Menin Gate' by Siegfried Sassoon

Here was the world's worst wound, And here with pride
'Their name liveth for ever', the gateway claims.
Was ever an immolation so belied
as these intolerably nameless names?
Well might the Dead who struggled in the slime
Rise and deride this sepulchre of crime.
