Give the Age What It Demands (standard:poetry, 102 words)
Author: kendall thomas Added: Jun 02 2010Views/Reads: 1295/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
anti-war poem
 



Give them all the guns and bullets 

they demand and all the terrible things 

that are made by man. . 

Tell them to go out and kill at will 

anything that moves or even still, 

reality is so much better than any game. 

. 

The rich who deal the cards 

will be the last to die. 

Wide-eyed with wonder, 

perched on mounds of bloody gold, they'll cry, 

“You mean it's over? 

But we were not the ones supposed to die.” 

. 

A demented prophet writes upon a crumbling wall, 

‘The age demands and in the end 

the age gets what it demands.'
