Family of Man


The April Poem-A-Day challenge generates 30,000 posts, from all over the world. Less than 1% of them make it to the daily top 10 lists. This is one of the top 10 poems:


It’s old men who send our young to war.
I don’t listen to them anymore.
It’s time to stand up, say nevermore,
it’s old men who send our young to war.
I’ve seen the play and ask once more,
what the hell are we fighting for?
It’s old men who send our young to war.
I don’t listen to them anymore.
