by Sassoon, Siegfried
...He stood alone in some ***** sunless place 
Where Armageddon ends. Perhaps he longed 
For days he might have lived; but his young face 
Gazed forth untroubled: and suddenly there thronged 
Round him the hulking Germans that I shot
When for his death my brooding rage was hot. 

He stared at them, half-wondering; and then 
They told him how I’d killed them for his sake— 
Those patient, stupid, sullen ...Read More



by Kipling, Rudyard
...long as The Blood endures,
I shall know that your good is mine: ye shall feel that my strength is yours:
In the day of Armageddon, at the last great fight of all,
That Our House stand together and the pillars do not fall.
Draw now the threefold knot firm on the ninefold bands,
And the Law that ye make shall be law after the rule of your lands.
This for the waxen Heath, and that for the Wattle-bloom,
This for the Maple-leaf, and that for the southern Broom.

...ath to come.

Eastern skies are dark with strife,
Western lands are stark with fear;
Rumours of world-war are rife,
Armageddon draweth near.
If your carcase you would save,
Hear, oh hear, the dreadful drum!
Fly to forest, cower in cave . . .
Brother, heed the wrath to come!

Brother, you were born too late;
Human life is but a breath.
Men delve deep, where darkly wait
Sinister the seeds of death,
There's no moment to delay;
Sorrowing the stars are blin...Read More

by Raine, Kathleen
...,
our elected parliaments
parrot their rhetoric
of peace and democracy
while the truth we deny
returns in our dreams
of Armageddon,
the death-wish, the arms-trade,
hatred and slaughter
profitable employment
of our thriving cities,
the arms-race
to the end of the world
of our postmodern, 
post-Christian,
post-human nations,
progress to the nihil
of our spent civilization.
But cause and effect,
just and inexorable
law of the universe
no fix of science,
nor amenable god
can ...Read More

...out of Bedford,
A vagrant oft in quod,
A privet under Fairfax,
A minister of God--


Two hundred years and thirty
 Ere Armageddon came
His single hand portrayed it,
 And Bunyan was his name!


He mapped for those who follow,
 The world in which we are--
"This famous town of Mansoul"
 That takes the Holy War.
Her true and traitor people,
 The gates along her wall,
From Eye Gate unto Feel Gate,
 John Bunyan showed them all.


All enemy divisions,
 Recruits of every cla...Read More

And straitly fence and strictly keep
 The Ark's integrity
Till Armageddon break our sleep . . .

by Lindsay, Vachel
...morrow will bring peace; 
Let us make merry, and go forth in lust." 

What will you trading frogs do on a day 
When Armageddon thunders thro' the land; 
When each sad patriot rises, mad with shame, 
His ballot or his musket in his hand? 

In the distracted states from which you came 
The day is big with war hopes fierce and strange; 
Our iron Chicagos and our grimy mines 
Rumble with hate and love and solemn change. 

Too many weary men shed honest tears, 
Ground by m...Read More
