ZGram - Where Truth is Destiny:  Now more than ever!

MAY 30, 2004

Good Morning from the Zundelsite

Once more, I'd like to alert you to a well-organized website with 
many original essays and articles - and a poetic flair.  I am 
speaking of Axis of Logic and its Executive Editor, Les Blough. 

Axis of Logic is a website that is only a year old but ambitious.  On 
it, I found this touching poem.  Maybe it is a well-known poem, but 
it is new to me. 

[START]

Memorial Day 2004

We Soldiers of All Nations Who Lie Killed

We soldiers of all nations who lie killed
Ask little: that you never, in our name,
Dare claim we died that men might be fulfilled.
The earth should vomit us, against that shame.
We died; is that enough? Many died well,
Of both sides; most of us died senselessly.
Ask soldiers who outlived us; they may tell
How many died to make men slaves, or free.
We died. None knew, few tried to guess just why.
No one knows now, on either side of the grave.
If you insist you know, by all means try,
That being your trade, to make the knowledge
save.
But never use, not as you honor sorrow,
Our murdered days to garnish your tomorrow.

James Agee [1945]
