You’re Too Young to Die
The bombs fell and fell.
Blood was shed like a waterfall.
All bullets were finished at the guns.
Soldiers fought with bare hands.
Two soldiers remained,
Preparing to fight.
Suddenly, one screamed:
“You’re too young to die!”
The other replied:
“You have never even shaved yet.”
They dropped the fight.
“Do you know about Prince Hamlet?”
“Do you know about King Lear?”
They took a bag with
A bottle of water, some food,
And left the battleground.
They wandered a long time until they saw
A small spring with some fruit trees.
They washed their bodies and fell asleep.
In their dreams two muses came by
And they all flew far away together.
In the morning they heard voices of herds of sheep.
The youthful shepherds greeted them.
They taught the shepherds to read and write.
The youthful shepherds gave them food and clothes.
They married the two muses and they all
lived happily ever after.
