    The message of the poem, which Bob Dylan, wants to convey is the destruction war creates on the lives of the soldiers, both mentally and physically. The soldiers undergo physical and emotional exhaustion while fighting in a war. John Brown realizes while he is fighting in the war that he is either killing a human being or die trying. War changes a person. He himself undergoes several harm, barely coming out alive, with his face all shot up and his hand all blown up. The people like his mother are ignorant about the horrors of the war and hence, glorifies war.
