In two breathtaking sentences bursting with undeniable truths from the history of Nazi terror under “the megalomania of a single mad man and his million admirers,” to the horrors of yet another megalomaniac who sends his armed forces to invade across the Ukrainian borders “again shattering the illusions of human progress,” poet R. Craig Sautter rattles our peace of mind pointedly reminding us that in war there are no victors, in militaristic peace, there is but the short lived security of nightmares. The North Star of the final sentence is convincing: “We must finally learn to love one another or we must die.”
This is a must read poem that will not soon be forgotten.
