The War Works Hard

Dunya Mikhail

The war works hard

How magnificent

the war is.

The war works hard

Early in the morning

How eager and efficient!

It wakes up sirens

And dispatches ambulances

To various places

Swing corpses through the air

Rolls stretchers to the wounded

The war works hard

Summons rain from the eyes of mothers

From under the ruins…

Others are pale and still throbbing

Digs into the earth dislodging many things

Some are lifeless and glistening

It produces the most questions in the minds of children

The war works hard

Entertains the gods

By shooting fireworks and missiles into the sky

Sows mines in the fields

And reaps punctures and blisters

Urges families to emigrate

Stands beside the clergymen

The war works hard

As they curse the devil

Poor devil, he remains

With one hand in the searing fire…

The war continues working, day and night.

It inspires tyrants to deliver long speeches

The war works hard

Awards medals to generals

And themes to poets

It contributes to the industry of artificial limbs

Provides food for flies

Adds pages to history books

The war works hard

Achieves quality between killer and killed

Teaches lovers to write letters

Accustoms young women to waiting

Fills the newspapers with articles and pictures

Builds new houses for the orphans

Invigorates the coffin makers

The war works hard

Gives grave diggers a pat on the back

And paints a smile on the leader’s face

Yet no one gives it a word of praise!

It works with unparalleled diligence!
