Wednesday Poem of the Week: The Age Demanded by Ernest Hemingway

1 Comment 08 February 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The age demanded that we sing
And cut away our tongue.

The age demanded that we flow
And hammered in the bung.

The age demanded that we dance
And jammed us into iron pants.

And in the end the age was handed
The sort of shit that it demanded.
