Lucia Trent: Breed, little mothers, breed for the war lords who slaughter your sons


Lucia Trent
Women of War

Women, who lust for blood and harbor hate,
Who drive your men on branded spikes of fate
To die in terror on a blood-drenched sod
To the extortionate glory of your God,
How do you dare to hold a sacred place
And claim to be the mothers of the race?
How can you heal and cleanse with heart and mind
The old recurrent blunders of mankind,
Cherish a rebel longing in your breast
To right each wrong and grievance unredressed?
Oh, we who follow where true mothers lead
Pity the fruit of your unhallowed seed!
