I just discovered, quite by accident, that a poem of mine is on the Canadian Poets Against War site. I sent it in to them sometime last summer -- and I guess they published it without informing me. Looking at its placement on their list, I can only imagine it's been there for some time. Funny, I wrote this one 'way back in the early '80s, but did some minor edits just before submitting it. (Never too late to edit. I'll probably be editing on my death bed.) Curious thing is, I vividly remember writing it -- in a cafe beside Pages Books on Queen St. in Toronto. It was written in response to news coverage I had just seen of the Iran-Iraq war.
