Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Border Campaigning

 The bow you carry should be strong,
The shaft you use be long.
Aim at the rider's horse: the King
Of brigands first to justice bring.
So shall both slaughter lessened be,
And States keep their integrity.
If raid and foray you can quell,
What need for carnage fell?

~  Tu Fu
