Love And War - Poem by Clove Beatty

Love and war
or love OF war?
A fine line was drawn
but as you look at your feet
to see as you stand
the line becomes blurry
Making it hard to tell
On which side you stand

    ph says you are 15. i have my doubts, but it could be true. i find some cleverness? in this poem but also some lack of understanding on my part. it doesn't sound right that love and war (whatever do you refer to there?) and love OF war could be opposites as it seems you are implying. love AND war are a pair of things but how are you thinking that they are related? love and war are objects though action is usually associated with the first and always with the second (i think) . but love OF war, kind of an object, makes me think more of an emotion than of action, though love of war could easily cause action.
    after the first two lines i like the poem better. why are the first letters of some lines capitalized and those of other lines not? ? you don't seem to be following any rule i know of. thanks for sharing. :) (Report) Reply
