First Line: Nature without a plan?
Last Line: Simply dislodgement.
Subject(s): Nature; World War Ii; Second World War

Nature without a plan?
Nay, a mute schemer,
Nature may throw off Man,
Man the blasphemer.

Why not? She is no mother
Of endless patience:
She hath abolished other
Types, tribes and nations.

Wits, warmth, and wine and corn,
And rule she gave him;
Answered with rage and scorn,
Why should she save him?

Let him but run his course,
Sans bit or bridle,
And by intestine force
Fall, suicidal—

No trump or sword of flame,
No books of judgment,
No writ against his name,
Simply dislodgement.
