Mark Twain, Ambrose Bierce and H.L. Menken were the "paragons of pessimism" during their days. To that group add the voice of Stephen Crane who was their equal in expressing the cynicism of the age; but Crane's cynicism often came wrapped around a seed of hope for mankind.
Both this volume and The Black Riders and Other Lines are highly recommended.
A "reality" poem that is a reminder of the stark reality of the world today that is alive w/ "insanity" regarding our battle w/ ourselves as human beings. "REALITY IS THE TOUGHEST PILL TO SWALLOW" - & thus we ALL need to be reminded to "practice the Golden Rule"!!
Here is how the poem from which the title is derived ends:
"Mother whose heart hung humble as a button
On the bright splendid shroud of your son,
Do not weep.
War is kind!"
