What Are We Going To Fight Over To-day ?


When pen
Becomes gun
Ideas flow like bullets

The enemy
Picks up gun
Unable to withstand the ‘ fire’ of ideas
And sprays bullets
To eliminate ideas

Question remains
As it did for ages and ages
What are we going to fight over to-day?
What is your grudge?’

The fight
Never ends
‘ To- day, the deliberate increase in the chances of death,
The conscious acceptance of guilt in the necessary murder;
To- day the expending of powers
On the flat ephemeral pamphlet and the boring meeting …’ (2)
