Bleach in the sun

We never saw the dead
Though they were there
Bones were all that remained
A slaughtered Legion
So much bloodshed
Did they have courage
Had they dared
Remnants washed away
With the rain
They sleep in the grass
Fallen for so long
Their mission forgotten
Our shame it is
They lay for us
But we've forgotten
The names
