an old poem

Post by Terry W. Martin on Sat 14 Jun 2014, 9:23 am

After reading Stan's post on the "What was the point?" thread, I was reminded of a short ditty I penned back on the Fourth of July in 1973:

... the battle has ended,
    the ageless war is won;
the enemy disbanded,
    the victorious are as one;
can't I understand it
    now that the killing's done?

Death came empty-handed
    with Sunday's brilliant sun,
to visit homes defended
    by every mother's son;
patriotic dream repentant
    now that the killing's done.

... and few be those remaining alive
to tell of Death's heavy harvest scythe.

Terry W. Martin
