Demons run when a good man goes to war.

June 15, 2011 at 3:50 pm (Poetry)

I heard this poem earlier today and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Imagine the conviction it must take for a good man to go to war.

Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun, When a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies,
Night will fall and the dark will rise, When a good man goes to war.

Demons run but count the cost.
The battle’s won, but the child is lost.

    This poem makes me sad…but I understand where your coming from.

    It is a good poem. Reminds me for some reason
    of EPIGRAPH ON A TYRANT by WH Auden:

    Perfection, of a kind, was what he was after,
    And the poetry he invented was easy to understand;
    He knew human folly like the back of his hand,
    And was greatly interested in armies and fleets;
    When he laughed, respectable senators burst with laughter,
    And when he cried the little children died in the streets.

    Hej Ferzani!

    Förlåt, jag missade totalt din kommentar! Jag har tyvärr inte några gamla datorsystems tentor. Det borde finnas gamla datorsystems tentor uppe på kurshemsidan, jag tyckte att de var jätteduktiga på att lägga upp information på kurshemsidan. Jag vet dock inte hur de gör i år.

    Hoppas att det går/gick bra på tentan!

    Jag har inte testat Ragnarok Online, men funderar på att göra det så fort jag får tid över! 😀
