contrast within itself. Each contrast that is used, though, helps the reader understand that war was not good, even for the families. But it was extremely worse for the soldiers who fought in the war. The poem isn't about any certain war, either. Any war in the past, present, or future could be described by this poem. No war is good, and no war was any worse than another, from a soldiers point of view.
