Useful And Fantastic: Playworld

Val Yule's poem reminds us that play war can become real war.

Children play and shout
"Bang Bang you’re dead!"
Behind the fence
"O God," his mother said.

Adults play and shout
Their TV blood is red
Its drama news tonight,
"O God" a mother said.

Generals play and shout.
Move missiles up ahead.
Bomb what? Those towns below.
"O God," five million said.

Devils play and shout
Their dice has rolled ahead
and blows apart.
"O world," God said.
