No Men Are Foreign
What is the summary of the poem "No men are foreign" written by James Kirkup?
Please provide me with a line-by-line explanation so that i can clearly understand the poem
This poem is about all men being brothers -- that all people are essentially the same.
- All people are the same beneath their uniforms/clothes.
- All walk on the same kind of land and will all be buried in it.
- All are fed by the harvest and the harvests are ruined by war
- Our hands are the same and we all do the same work.
- They sleep and wake as we do.
- Love is strong enough to conquer all people -- all people are the same
- When we are told to hate others, it's ourselves we are hating.
- When we fight each other, we are defiling the earth we all live on and the air we all breathe.
