11/11/1918

Just think

what all those dead

young men could have done

in the years after 1918.

Think of the advances

in Art, Literature,

Music, Science. Think of

the leaders who might

have steered their countries

into a better new age.

And think of the

potential of their

descendants, never born.

Because politicians,

and Generals, thought

nothing of those things,

and happily sent

them off to die.

For nothing.
