Subject(s): Children; Childhood


Gray eyes,
And chubby fists
That clasp my hands in faith;
The whole, a life for which I live --
My child.

Grim men
In endless lines;
Then mounds of bleeding flesh
And murdered men 'neath crosses white --
Man's war.

My child
With chubby fists,
Perhaps tomorrow's Christ
Sacrificed to man's brutish hate
And greed.
