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.

World Order
by J. Alexander Kerns

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!
