    You could use a simile that could be something like comparing the trenches to a cramped and overgrown forest, where the trees are rotting and so compact that they almost intertwine, their branches running through one another. Or if you want to be even more hyperbolic, think of something like grains of sand, where there's literally no room between each individual grain, it's claustrophobic. I like to be dramatic when it comes to this kind of thing :lol:
