First Line: One man craves a scarf or glove
Last Line: That the ages sanctify.
Subject(s): Civilization


One man craves a scarf or glove,
And another man must die,
For such is the rule of light and love
That our lives are guided by.

One man craves a jeweled cross,
And another hangs thereon.
And the watching world feels less remorse
Than the winner feels of scorn.

One man barters, one man buys
Spirit and blood and breath.
And the market groans with new supplies
Though the stalls be cleared by death.

One man craves a scarf or glove,
And another man must die.
For such is the rule of light and love
That the ages sanctify.
