Potato Hole
Brodie, Age 12, Kitimat, BC

This poem is dedicated to the two young men who died after sleeping in a potato hole. This event was written in the novel Winter Hero by J. Collier and C. Collier. (Chapter Twelve, Page 117)

War is sad; I'll tell you why
The truth is many youth will die
Three boys I knew, their hearts were huge....

I still remember that awful night
When I was cold and full of fright
When I saw that horrible sight
Two young men pale and cold
They died in a potato hole
When I looked up I could see their souls
Of those two men, pale and cold.
