APED: "cadmus"

Sow the Dragon's teeth. Walk through
the field you plowed, and in your wake
toss them, sharp-tipped gleaming stone,
and let them sprout. The children follow.
Their thirst is red, and hard to slake.

Then throw a large, round rock among
this eager crop, to make them war
and slake their need upon each other.
Keep those few they've left. Good luck --
Men have tried, and failed, before.
