A La Recherche De Paul Verlaine - Poem by Anthony Weir

Miserable wars
if love is not the reason
Miserable wars

Miserable weapons
if they are not kisses

Pitiable men
if they don't die of love

Men have killed
more women than men

The most miserable love
is fought for
The most pitiable kisses are weapons
and the most pathetic men
refuse to live for love without motive.
