Jane Addams, August 21, 1915


Jane Addams



IT IS a breed of little blinded men
And wanton <bitter> wanton women who would laugh at her
Because in time of war she sets astir
Against the sword legions of the pen
To write the name of Jesus Christ again
And on this page, a swarming broken blur,
Restore the word of the Deliverer
Above the words of the little blinded men.

In time of peace, which is a time of war
More subtle slow and cunning, she has brought
Together enemies in armistice ...
Yet, in the face of what she did before
Against the war that centuries have fought,
We ban her from a little war like this!
