WHEN WOLVES CRY BOY

At the dawn of the fifth way of war,
Wolfish men donned boy's clothes
and when unceasing cries of 'Wolf!' arose
The people began to hear, boy's cries, no more.

Leaving the meek and the wise, 
to circle and ponder:
Will wolves and men
ever cease to tear us asunder?

How are hearts returned to wonder?
