Conscience

Would you?

Would you do it –
even one man –
a single sacrificial
lamb of peace?
…what peace is this then
if stained with blood
not of rage or caprice
but need?
and if life be that
on which we feed –
no more than this –
a hangman’s rope
a knot of greed
a Judas kiss –
then all men hope
is vain indeed.
