Oh for a Man!

Human flowers are strewn away.

And rudely trampled in the clay.

Thinkers, Scholars, stamd aghast.

Saying, war must ever last.

Heaven gave us a mortal true.

Either peasant or Lordling blue. 

and make him say

War is not the Lords way.

Nature's way is Life and Love

Forsooth with war, and search above
