Dragons Teeth. - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

We know: We’ve seen it all before.
Devastation, desolation
the aftermath of modern war.

Although it shocks us to the core
It recalls to our attention.
We know: we’ve seen it all before.

We have chosen to ignore
Lack of valid information
The aftermath of modern war

To us it’s just another chore
needing little explanation.
We know: We’ve seen it all before

There is no way we can
restore any kind of cultivation.
The after math of modern war.

Still danger lies for evermore
unexploded ammunition.
The aftermath of modern war.
We know: We’ve seen it all before.

    'Understanding the ways of learned men,
    Acting on behalf of kit and kin,
    To kill one half mankind is best, *
    Just to philosophize the rest.'
    (From Hudibras in America, pp 117, Hudibras in the Burlesque Tradition)
