Shuon 1

, by Kartavirya
  • These fought in any case, and some believing pro domo, in any case …..

    Died some, pro patria,* walked eye-deep in hell believing in old men’s lies, then unbelieving came home, home to a lie, home to many deceits, home to old lies and new infamy;
    usury age-old and age-thick and liars in public places.

    Daring as never before, wastage as never before.

    Young blood and high blood, fair cheeks, and fine bodies;
    fortitude as never before
    frankness as never before, disillusions as never told in the old days, hysterias, trench confessions, laughter out of dead bellies.

    - Ezra Pound
