on guard!

if we looked at history 
on a multi-plane spreadsheet 
and compared the goings on 
in each particular era 

we shall find that at any given 
period, no matter the advancement 
there inevitably at a cost, lay revealed 

atrocities, genocides, discrimination 

prejudices, and a lack of conscience 
that marks the brute in humans 
poets have also been present 
ever alert, on the front-line 

emissaries of peace and amelioration 
their words rousing, humanising 

Keep your pens in hand,
the job is not yet done.
