Isn’t it Quiet

Posted in Poems, Poetry by Solveig Hansen on 2016/11/26

Irish poet Pat Ingoldsby wrote this poem in 1997. Still as releveant a comment as ever.

 

ISN’T IT QUIET

By (c) Pat Ingoldsby

When the Catholics have killed all the Protestants
and the Protestants have killed all the Catholics
and the Jews have killed all the Arabs
and the Arabs have killed all the Jews
and the Muslims have killed all the Christians
and the Christians have killed all the Muslims
and all the graveyards are full
and all the crematoria are burned out
and only one person is left living on this Earth
I hope to fuck they enjoy the peace.

 
From See Liz She Spins, 1997
