So Abram rose, and clave the wood, and went,

And took the fire with him, and a knife.

And as they sojourned both of them together,

Isaac the first-born spake and said, My Father,

Behold the preparations, fire and iron,

But where the lamb for this burnt-offering?

Then Abram bound the youth with belts and straps,

And builded parapets and trenches there,

And stretchèd forth the knife to slay his son.

When lo! an Angel called him out of heaven,

Saying, Lay not thy hand upon the lad,

Neither do anything to him, thy son.

Behold! Caught in a thicket by its horns,

A Ram. Offer the Ram of Pride instead.



But the old man would not so, but slew his son,

And half the seed of Europe, one by one.

.: :.

The poem draws parallels with the events that started WW1. After the members of some royal Bosnian family were killed, there was no real threat of invasion or destruction that nessessitated war. However the Bosnian government would not scrafice their \"ram of pride\" and let the assassinations go unanwsered. The old men then started the war, leading to the death of the young, the \"seed of Europe\".
