The correct answer to this question is Wilfred Owen. This poem is also called Pro Patria. The poem was written by Owen around the time of World War 1. He uses the poem to bring light to the many horrors that come along with war.

He does so in the three stanzas that the poem includes. In each stanza, the soldiers have a different mood. First, they start out tired, then they are panicked, and by the end, they are bitter. This poem is a reflection of what many soldiers go through when they go off to war, which is why many are against it.
