Shevek had listenened with incredulous disgusr ' You call that organisation? But it is neither.
It is a coercive mechanism of extraordinary inefficiency - a kind of seventh millenium steam engine! With such a rigid and fragile structure what could be done that was worth doing?

Both poem are a bout war but they are wrote in completely different ways. Firstly, Wilfred Owen wrote a poem named Dulce et Decorum. Wilfred Owen was born in in Owestry, Shropshire and he died in
I habve to listen for it patiently: What door will open to the flicker's knock? Out here there is another way to be, described by the high circles of a hawk above what hides in silence in the tree.
