Would You Mind

Dear Gunner,

We have the leg you lost.
Would ship it tomorrow. Before that,
When you mourn the loss by an exploded mine,
Would you mind if I mourn the mine first?
You sacrificed your leg, made one gone
And left three hundred here.
So I would mourn three hundred yellow faces
First, and then send it to you.
Mind seeing faces as grave as tombs?
