A Happy War

POETRY FORMAT, 15 Oct 2012

Tom Greening – TRANSCEND Media Service

Pacifism’s such a bore—
I’m going to design a war
that even peaceniks won’t abhor,
with pretty bombs and rosy gore,
songs that stir you to your core,
and moral stands you can’t ignore.
There’ll be no terror any more
when I’ve designed my happy war.


Tom Greening: “I engage in five professional activities:
Faculty Member at Saybrook University
Private Practice of Psychotherapy
Clinical Professor of Psychology, UCLA
International Editor of the Journal of Humanistic Psychology
Writing (Poetry).”
