D. A. Wilson: Who Won the War?

Anti-war essays, poems, short stories and literary excerpts

D. A. Wilson
Who Won the War?

Who won the war?
“I,” muttered Foch,
“For I hammered the Boche,
I won the war, I won the war!”

All the women of the world, tho forever they were weeping
Could never waken one of the dead men sleeping.

Who won the war?
“We,” say the Yanks,
“With machine guns and tanks,
We won the war, we won the war!”

All the women of the world, tho forever they were weeping
Could never waken one of the dead men sleeping.

Who won the war?
Silent the dead,
By them naught is said,
They won the war, they won the war!

All the women of the world, tho forever they were weeping
Could never waken one of the dead men sleeping.

Who won the war?
Nothing was won,
Yet the world was undone,
Damned is the war, damned is the war!

All the women of the world, tho forever they were weeping
Could never waken one of the dead men sleeping.
