Spoilers for the ending scene of Infinity War.


Ashes to ashes,
dust to dust;
So fail the heroes,
so perish the just.
So lost was the war
they sought to win
With naught left for comfort
but what might have been.

Detritus of brothers
sifts through their hands,
The fragments of friendship
across scattered lands;
They stare in horror,
bewildered despair
And desperately cling
to smoke in the air.

This hollow undoing,
the cost of this loss,
The universe halved
in cruel pitch-and-toss;
The weight of their failure,
the end of their trust
In ashes to ashes,
and dust to dust.
