I would like to post this poem by my Professor, J. Alexander
Kerns (1893-1975). The poem written in 1944 (his poems privately
published, Newark, NJ, 1946) is entitled "World Order". He was an avid
animal rights person way back when and frequently had letters in Staten
Island newspapers in NYC. I have the legal rights to his papers.
SOME day Man's world will be complete,
And all his days be spent
In "Brotherhood" and "Justice" meet--
In smooth and smug content.
All other Life will be extinct
Save such as Man still needs
To keep His royal middle cinct,
To gorge Him, when He feeds.
Nor Wars be but remembered more
As Strange, Historic Sins:
--How nice it is to live Before
The Promised Age begins!
