Revolving in oval loops of solar speed, Couched in cauls of clay as in holy robes, Dead men render love and war no heed, Lulled in the ample womb of the full-tilt globe. No spiritual Caesars are theses dead; They want no proud paternal kingdom come;

Answers:

It means the dead have no pride in being killed in war.
People stand around wondering if a soldier goes to Heaven.

"Theses dead"? What the fcuk does that mean?

(It means you mis-transcribed Sylvia Plath's poem, in which the phrase is "these dead.")

The theme is that death is final. Dead men are buried, and remain in the ground as long as the planets go round the sun. That is all that happens after death.

It is about someone passing a huge poop that's been stuck in their bowels for a long time.

Revolving in oval loops of solar speed, (clearly the poo has been dislodged after it's incredible journey around and through the intestines)
Couched in cauls of clay as in holy robes, (the 'cauls of clay' refers to the grey, slimy nature of intestines, which enrobed the poo during its journey)
Dead men render love and war no heed, (a reference to being alive, which is the only state in which a person would need to poo. Essentially is acknowledging that the poo is uncomfortable, but asks if the pooer would rather suffer the poo or be dead)
Lulled in the ample womb of the full-tilt globe. (the poo got really comfortable in the intestine, but now it's world is tilted as it has been dislodged. 'Globe' also refers to the shape of the poo, which is very compact and hard)

No spiritual Caesars are theses dead; (refers to the Caesarian operation, which the pooer may have considered to remove the poo, however this line confirms that the poo has been dislodged and the Caesarian is not needed)
They want no proud paternal kingdom come; (this refers to the way many people are proud when they pass a difficult poo, and warns the pooer of the hubris that can follow)
And when at last they blunder into bed ('bed' in this case refers to the toilet, this symbolism is used because it also refers to the irony of having the poo slide out unexpectedly into ones sleeping place)
World-wreaked, they seek only oblivion. (this refers to the journey of the poo, and how, after everything it's been through, it only wants oblivion - the toilet hole)

Rolled round with goodly loam and cradled deep, (self-explanatory)
These bone shanks will not wake immaculate (the poo was so hard it felt like bone - it is not a floater either (will not wake))
To trumpet-toppling dawn of doomstruck day : (continuation of line above)
They loll forever in colossal sleep; (this is just a typo - should read lol instead of loll. The poo is laughing, because it wanted to escape all along. The 'colossal sleep' refers again to the massive size of the poo)
Nor can God's stern, shocked angels cry them up (the pooer cannot pray for the poo's return now that the pooer realizes how much s/he misses the poo, kind of like postpartem depression)
From their fond, final, infamous decay (the poo is gone, but it will serve as useful fertilizer for valuable life, so it's OK!)
