Point for them the virtue of slaughter,
The speaker's ideas here are incredibly dark and cruel. Killing and slaughter are not excellent or virtuous by any means. One could argue that according to our poet, people who think like this are partly to blame for the existence of war in the first place, and they're the ones who keep wars going.

Mother whose heart hung humble as a button
The simile of the mother's heart being as humble as a button is one of the saddest moments in the whole poem. It makes her seem oh so powerless in the face of the forces of war.
