Study War No More

We got our marching orders:


So we dropped our guns

grabbed our partners

and dosey-doed

until the jazzy Jersey cows–

their blacks splotches the strange shapes of nations–

came sashaying home.

And you know, come to think of it,

we've never cracked the spines

of our military manuals since.

Greg Kennedy, SJ is assigned to the spiritual exercises ministry at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph, Ontario.
