Pierre Heinen

The yellow frontline

Be in the frontline and see,
how death has a strangle on us.

We are stuck forever, cannot flee,
the enemy is unleashing yellow dust.

We are waiting to be gassed,
wearing our masks for the ball.

Fighting for freedom we must,
but war is not the solution for us all.

Some soldiers around will never wake up,
somewhere artillery is saluting with death.

I am still alive, tired and covered with mud,
asking myself where I will do my last breath.

Why am I fighting against enemy troops?
Why am I shooting at my own kind?

Why are our heads in these loops?
Are we sane in our mind?

Book by Pierre Heinen:


Payla – Die Goldinsel I von Pierre Heinen

Auf Payla, der lukrativsten Provinz des Königreiches Lotanko, neigt sich der Sommer des Jahres 962 dem Ende entgegen. Die schier unerschöpflichen Goldvorräte der Insel lassen Machthungrige Pläne schmieden und ihre gierigen Klauen ausfahren. Wer den Winter überstehen will, muss um sein Leben kämpfen, wer über die Goldinsel herrschen will, muss in den Krieg ziehen.
