It is possible to imagine that Reed invites the audience of this poem to share some private moments, who uses her response as an occasion for musing about what it feels like to be real man, about the importance of hometown, about love for the past, and about the habit of joining organizations-all of this while sitting alone in a room.
Reed uses a unique topic of past, present and future to create a picture of the world and emotional tension. Figurative language and metaphors help him to unveil reality of soldier's life and evil of the war. "And to-morrow morning, We shall have what to do after firing" (Reed).
