For This?

Donald Davidson (1893-1968), "Lee in the Mountains," Poems 1922-1961 (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1966), pp. 43-46 (at 45):
And nothing else than this? Was it for this
That on an April day we stacked our arms
Obedient to a soldier's trust? To lie
Ground by heels of little men,
Forever maimed, defeated, lost, impugned?
