Justice Is Now Needed Over Here


Seventh,
Showed,
Finished;
But, soon came your love in the land of tears!
Because, the bullets of war had now reached to your room.

Hatred and war! !
On this earth;
But, the sign of His coming is noted by all.
Spice, ice!
It is like historical event;
But, you are now decked with gold.

Pigeon, on!
Justice is needed in the world today to put things right;
But, the bullets of war had now reached your room.
Tile, fertile!
With the pages of history;
Lurk,
Inrush!
With the stages of war.

The inquest!
Of the gold leaf;
Swallow, sallow!
Of the golden leaf;
Wart, war!
With your mind and my mind;
But, justice is now needed over here.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
