Flashcards in WWII Poem Analysis Deck (26):
Who wrote September 1, 1939?
I sit at one of the dives...
Of a low dishonest decade...
From Luther until now...
Led the Protestant reformation and was from Germany
Find out what occurred at Linz..
Austrian town where Hitler was born
A psychopathic god...
Those to whom evil is done...
Versailles, WWII is the revenge
Exiled Thucydides knew
Philosopher with Democracy beliefs
The enlightenment driven away...
Changing the government, democracy is the answer
We must suffer them all again...
Back at war again
Into this neutral air...
US is neutral at the time
Where blind skyscrapers use
City, what we can achieve
Out of mirror they stare...
Hitler,, Mussolini, Hirohito are villains
Cling to their average day...
To make this fort assume...
The bar he is at
The furniture of home...
US protected well from violence of the war so far
Craves what it cannot have...
We want universal love, peace, and prosperity
The defense commuters come...
coming to work
Repeating their morning vow...
Routinely going to work
To resume their compulsory game:
Who can release them now, who can reach the deaf, who can speak for the dumb?
Who will help the people who need it? We are too worried about ourselves, we wonder if we will reach out.
All I have is a voice...
As a poet, all he can do is write
Of the sensual man-in-the-street...
What are people saying about the war
Greek god of depression
Whose buildings grope the sky: there is no such thing as the state...
None of our business, were neutral, not attacked yet
And no one exists alone; hunger allows no choice to the citizens or police, we must love one another or die.
Humanity binds us together no matter what, we are all in equality in our country, no discrimination, to love means no choice but to care.
