When Genius Walked The Streets Before The Wars

 

Once there was genius.

There were many;

There were genii,

And we will never know how many, for

There came a war.

In fact, there came a-many.

And there came dictator:

Many.

Killings, fleeings, shittings, peeings: chaos.

Geniuses that walked the streets

(or stayed at home creating) Joy!

And then, the girls, boys

With life to change the arts, the sciences

Were gone before begun;

Departed.

Never started.

Never to know what they missed,

We, not to be ever kissed by them

When genius walked the streets

Before

The wars.
