Crane pushes this mocking tone to put forth an opinion to enlighten his readers that no matter the awards and glory a person may receive for losing someone to war, war will only leave people heartbroken and lonely, hence the idea that war will never be kind.

Imagery is used widely in poems but specifically in stanza three imagery is applied to create sad and depressing sympathy. “Your father tumbles in…
