Song of the Exposition
By Walt Whitman
(Americas most original and creative poet, 18191892; printer and journalist, during the war an army nurse, and later a government clerk, discharged for publishing what his superiors considered an indecent book)
AWAY with themes of war! away with War itself!
Hence from my shuddering sight, to never more return, that show of blackend, mutilated corpses!
That hell unpent, and raid of bloodfit for wild tigers, or for lop-tongued wolvesnot reasoning men!
