Captives was published in Hemingway's collection, Three Stories and Ten Poems (1923), retrieved from Wikisource.
Some came in chains
Unrepentent but tired.
Too tired but to stumble.
Thinking and hating were finished
Thinking and fighting were finished
Retreated and hoping were finished.
Cures thus a long campaign,
Making death easy.
