Poetry Friday--Thoughts on the Upcoming Memorial Day

Some lines from a Scottish poet, Charles Mackay:
There's a good time coming, boys,
A good time coming:
War in all men's eyes shall be
A monster of iniquity
In the good time coming.
Nations shall not quarrel then
To prove which is the stronger,
Nor slaughter men for glory's sake:
Wait a little longer.
Let's hope that the good time comes soon because we all grow weary with weeping.
