War and Childhood

by Robert Bly

Robert Bly

A friend of mine says that every war
Is your childhood coming closer.
Those whoppings in the shed weren"t a joke.
On the whole, it didn"t turn out well.

" We"ll get back at him! "
You know what that"s like. Something
Happened to me, and I can"t tell
Anyone, so it will happen to you.
