Odd that Auden
who never heard
a shot fired in anger
wrote the best poem
about the coming of WWII.
This only proves
that you don't have
to be a warrior
to understand war.
War is a corruption
in the hearts of men.
If you know the human heart,
if you understand
that infection,
you know all you need
to know about war.
