Bent-double, like old beggars under sacks,

Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we curse through sludge

Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs,

And towards our distant rest began to trudge,

Men marched asleep, many had lost their boots,

But limped on, blood-shed. All went lame, all blind;

Drunk with fatigue; even deaf to the hoots

Of gas-shells dropping softy behind.The expression Drunk with fatigue illustrates

Options

A) metaphor

B) synecdoche

C) litotes

D) irony

The correct answer is A.
