3 A.01. War - What It Be


War – fear cloaked in courage be,
War – a solution can never ever be,
War – but an aggravator surely be,
War – but murder in uniform only be.

War – a repeal of principles of virtue be,
War – a breeding ground of all vices be,
War – days of harvest for the devil be,
War – a means of peace can not be.

War – not an adventure ever be,
War – but a disease clearly be,
War – interlude during peace be,
Or peace – interlude during war be?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
