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!
