Armies

April 23, 2018

 

Armies are tools of violence

They cause men to hate and to fear

The sage will not join them

His purpose is creation

Their purpose is destruction 

Weapons are tools of violence

Not of the sage's

The sage uses them only when there is no choice

And even so calmly, with tact

For he finds no beauty in weapons

Delights in the slaughter of men

Who delights in the slaughter of men

Who delights in slaughter

Cannot content himself with peace

So slaughters must be morned

And conquest celebrated as if a furnal
